This thesis covers various facets of brain image computing methods and illustrates the scientific understanding of neurodegenerative disorders based on four general aspects of multimodal neuroimaging computing: neuroimaging data pre-processing, brain feature modeling, pathological pattern analysis, and translational model development. It demonstrates how multimodal neuroimaging computing techniques can be integrated and applied to neurodegenerative disease research and management, highlighting relevant examples and case studies. Readers will also discover a number of interesting extension topics in longitudinal neuroimaging studies, subject-centered analysis, and the brain connectome. As such, the book will benefit all health informatics postgraduates, neuroscience researchers, neurology and psychiatry practitioners, and policymakers who are interested in medical image computing and computer-assisted interventions.
Brain imaging brings together the technology, methodology, research questions and approaches of a wide range of scientific fields including physics, statistics, computer science, neuroscience, biology, and engineering. Thus, methodological and technological advances that enable us to obtain measurements, examine relationships across observations, and link these data to neuroscientific hypotheses happen in a highly interdisciplinary environment. The dynamic field of machine learning with its modern approach to data mining provides many relevant approaches for neuroscience and enables the exploration of open questions. This state-of-the-art survey offers a collection of papers from the Workshop on Machine Learning and Interpretation in Neuroimaging, MLINI 2011, held at the 25th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing, NIPS 2011, in the Sierra Nevada, Spain, in December 2011. Additionally, invited speakers agreed to contribute reviews on various aspects of the field, adding breadth and perspective to the volume. The 32 revised papers were carefully selected from 48 submissions. At the interface between machine learning and neuroimaging the papers aim at shedding some light on the state of the art in this interdisciplinary field. They are organized in topical sections on coding and decoding, neuroscience, dynamcis, connectivity, and probabilistic models and machine learning.
This book constitutes the revised selected papers from the 4th International Workshop on Machine Learning and Interpretation in Neuroimaging, MLINI 2014, held in Montreal, QC, Canada, in DecemberÂ 2014 as a satellite event of the 11th annual conference on Neural Information Processing Systems, NIPS 2014.
The 10 MLINI 2014 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 17 submissions. They were organized in topical sections named: networks and decoding; speech; clinics and cognition; and causality and time-series.Â In addition, the book contains the 3 best papers presented at MLINI 2013.

Data compiled by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention indicates an alarming and continuing increase in the prevalence of autism. Despite intensive research during the last few decades, autism remains a behavioral defined syndrome wherein diagnostic criteria lack in construct validity. And, contrary to other conditions like diabetes and hypertension, there are no biomarkers for autism. However, new imaging methods are changing the way we think about autism, bringing us closer to a falsifiable definition for the condition, identifying affected individuals earlier in life, and recognizing different subtypes of autism.
The imaging modalities discussed in this book emphasize the power of new technology to uncover important clues about the condition with the hope of developing effective interventions. Imaging the Brain in Autism was created to examine autism from a unique perspective that would emphasize results from different imaging technologies. These techniques show brain abnormalities in a significant percentage of patients, abnormalities that translate into aberrant functioning and significant clinical symptomatology. It is our hope that this newfound understanding will make the field work collaborative and provide a path that minimizes technical impediments.
This volume offers a valuable starting point for anyone interested in learning computational diffusion MRI and mathematical methods for brain connectivity, while also sharing new perspectives and insights on the latest research challenges for those currently working in the field.
Over the last decade, interest in diffusion MRI has virtually exploded. The technique provides unique insights into the microstructure of living tissue and enables in-vivo connectivity mapping of the brain. Computational techniques are key to the continued success and development of diffusion MRI and to its widespread transfer into the clinic, while new processing methods are essential to addressing issues at each stage of the diffusion MRI pipeline: acquisition, reconstruction, modeling and model fitting, image processing, fiber tracking, connectivity mapping, visualization, group studies and inference.
These papers from the 2016 MICCAI Workshop âComputational Diffusion MRIâ â which was intended to provide a snapshot of the latest developments within the highly active and growing field of diffusion MR â cover a wide range of topics, from fundamental theoretical work on mathematical modeling, to the development and evaluation of robust algorithms and applications in neuroscientific studies and clinical practice. The contributions include rigorous mathematical derivations, a wealth of rich, full-color visualizations, and biologically or clinically relevant results. As such, they will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in the fields of computer science, MR physics, and applied mathematics.Â

The c- ference washeld jointly with the 2010InternationalConference on Active Media Technology (AMT 2010). Brain informatics (BI) hasemergedasaninterdisciplinaryresearch?eld that focuses on studying the mechanisms underlying the human information proce- ing system (HIPS). It investigates the essential functions of the brain, ranging from perception to thinking, and encompassing such areas as multi-perception, attention, memory, language, computation, heuristic search, reasoning, pl- ning, decision-making, problem-solving, learning, discovery, and creativity. The goal of BI is to develop and demonstrate a systematic approach to achieving an integrated understanding of both macroscopic and microscopic-level working principles of the brain, by means of experimental, computational, and cognitive neuroscience studies, as well as utilizing advanced Web intelligence (WI)-centric information technologies. BI represents a potentially revolutionary shift in the way that research is undertaken. It attempts to capture new forms of colla- rative and interdisciplinary work. In this vision, new kinds of BI methods and global research communities will emerge, through infrastructure on the wisdom Web and knowledge grids that enable high-speed and distributed, large-scale analysis and computations, and radically new ways of sharing data/knowledge.
