Talk title: Understanding Brain-Behavior Relationships
Abstract: This talk will explore the use of brain-behavior modeling in understanding brain organization. Focus will center on both aspects of such models. The first aspect is in terms of what the functional organization and how it reconfigures with performance across behavioral tasks tells us about brain organization across the lifespan and how it changes as a function of task. The second aspect is what such models tell us about novel and/or standardized behavioral paradigms that are commonly used. This second aspect will provide insight into the specific networks supporting performance on any given behavioral task and provide information on task combinations that better isolate specific cognitive constructs.
