Title: Age related network efficiency and the role of multi-modal neural underpinning
Authors: Seonjoo Lee - Columbia University/New York State Psychiatric Institute (United States) [presenting]
Abstract: The neuroanatomical underpinnings of cognitive reserve have been investigated using either structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or functional MRI. A multimodal data-fusion method is applied to a set of structural MRI, DTI and FLAIR data acquired from 167 cognitive normal participants in order to elucidate associations between aging and brain network efficiency. We compared the performance with the results when all modalities are analyzed separately.
