Statistics Seminars: Learning from Brain Images

Presented by Brian Ripley,

12 March 2004 14:00 in CM221

"Modern experimental techniques, especially Magnetic Resonance Imaging, can collect hundreds of megabytes of data per experimental 'point'. The challenge is to identify the small amount of signal amongst a lot of noise, to determine what is statistically significant and to take spatial structure into account. Jonathan Marchini and I have developed some successful examples in collaboration with Oxford's MRI centres, and the talk will cover at least two of these.
The talk will be illustrated with many pictures and (if possible) some movies, so no prior knowledge of imaging and very little of statistics will needed. "
