Title - Cross-Species Homologies in Patterns of Large-Scale Functional Brain Network Decline Across Aging Mice and Humans
Speaker: Ezra Winter-Nelson
PhD Student, UT Dallas
Examinations of resting-state functional connectivity (RSFC) brain networks are yielding important insights about heathy and pathological aging in human individuals. During adulthood, increasing age is associated with decreasing large-scale RSFC brain network segregation. Lower brain network segregation is linked to worse cognitive ability, alterations in brain function, socio-economic disparities, and age-related disease. However, the mechanisms underlying aging-related network reorganization remain largely unexplored. Our understanding of the environmental factors precipitating these changes can be advanced by establishing cross-species functional homologies in aging-associated brain network decline.
This talk is in-person in JO 4.306 and also is a virtual event. At 2:30pm on February 7, join the talk on MS Teams.
