States and traits in human brain networks

Abstract: Humans can easily and flexibly accomplish a wide variety of tasks, with different perceptual and cognitive demands, depending on their goals. This ability appears to depend on the coordinated interactions between brain regions that are organized into large-scale networks. In my research, I am interested in characterizing how human brain networks are organized, how they contribute to the myriad goal-directed behaviors that are essential to our daily lives, and how these processes break down. In my talk, I will present an overview of my research, highlighting recent projects centered on understanding functional brain network organization and how it changes over different timescales. I will introduce the use of a "precision" high-data approach to measuring brain networks reliably at the individual level and discuss some of the insights from this work.
