An Adaptable Framework to Extract Abnormal Brain Networks Archana Venkataraman assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Johns Hopkins University Abstract There is increasing evidence that complex neurological disorders reflect distributed impairments across multiple brain systems. These findings underscore the importance of network-based approaches for functional data. However, network analyses in clinical neuroimaging is largely limited to aggregate measures, which do not pinpoint a concrete etiological mechanism. In contrast, I will present a novel Bayesian framework that captures the underlying topology of the altered functional pathways. In the first part of this talk, I will introduce…
