JINS Special Issue: Human Brain Connectivity in the Modern Era: Relevance to Understanding Health and Disease

Co-organizers: Deanna M. Barch, Mieke Verfaellie, and Stephen M. Rao



  To identify and understand the primary methods by which one can examine human structural and/or functional brain connectivity. To identify and understand the primary benefits and challenges associated with the different methods used to assess human structural and functional brain connectivity. To understand relationships between normative variations in structural and/or functional connectivity and behavior. To identify the populations, brain systems, and behaviors associated with alterations in functional and structural connectivity. To describe the specificity across clinical domains of associations and the potential mechanisms by which functional and/or structural connectivity influences behavior. To describe similarities and differences in structural versus functional connectivity abnormalities across clinical populations.
