The goal of the meeting was to integrate more of the community component and to encourage more cross-talk across different disciplines. In addition to a brief activity to facilitate discourse, participants discussed important information about the goals and plans for upcoming meetings. The workshop was open to all, and students and postdocs were particularly encouraged to attend. Refreshments were provided!

Dr. Monica Rosenberg, Postdoctoral Associate at Yale University, presented "Connectome-based predictive modeling: Predicting individual differences in behavior from functional brain connectivity.” 

Abstract: fMRI studies of functional brain connectivity have traditionally described common features of network organization in the healthy population or have contrasted two groups, such as patients and controls. There is growing interest, however, in discovering connectivity-based biomarkers that predict individuals’ traits and behavior. I will present recent work that uses a new technique, connectome-based predictive modeling, to identify patterns of brain connectivity related to individual differences in attention, fluid intelligence, and personality measures. Critically, models based on these patterns — observed during both task performance and rest — generalize to predict behavior in novel participants and completely independent groups. This approach can be applied to make individualized predictions about other abilities and behaviors as well, and, from a broad perspective, demonstrates the potential for drawing inferences about single subjects from fMRI.

Sandy Shew, Director of Research Computing Services for Arts and Sciences, provided a hands-on walkthrough of the Unity cluster. Unity is a high-performance computing environment that is free to affiliates of the college of Arts and Sciences. Graduate students, postdocs and faculty attended to learn more about this service and how it could be implemented into their own analysis pipeline.
