NETWORK METHODS

Fundamental questions about network structure and dynamics arise in chemistry and the neurosciences. E.g., In many cases, it is useful to represent the brain - both structurally and functionally - as a large, complex network.  We engage graph theoretical analyses of large brain imaging datasets, to accelerate understanding of the consequences of traumatic brain injury on brain functioning over time. Our role in this work has been organized around developing novel methods that can be used by investigators to examine the large-scale brain changes after neurological disruption, including indicators of recovery and patient outcome.
