Research
Damage to white matter connections – the brain’s infrastructure for effective communication between regions – plays an important role in a large number of brain disorders. In my PhD research project, I apply statistical methods to investigate damage to white matter associated with brain disorders. My aim is to understand how brain function and dysfunction emerge from the wiring of the brain.
