The study of the human brain and its perceptual, cognitive, and motor functions is without any doubt one of the most challenging and fascinating topics of contemporary science. Recent years have seen significant advances in the application of sophisticated mathematical theories and visualization techniques to the problems arising in brain imaging modalities such as PET, EEG, MEG, optical imaging, and functional MRI. Fundamental problems like image registration, signal detection, surface warping, surface visualization, inter-subject registration, and inverse problems have to be addressed in order to fully utilize these techniques. All this research is carried out by interdisciplinary teams including radiologists, engineers, mathematicians, physicists, neuroscientists, and cognitive scientists. It is the goal of this workshop to bring together these teams. The Minisymposium will fundamentally include two types of lectures. One part will cover the techniques used to solve some of the mathematical/engineering problems raised by brain imaging research. The second component will include lectures on the use of brain imaging to advance our knowledge about the cognitive processes in the human brain. Introductory lectures about brain imaging modalities will be presented as well.
