University of Michigan Udall Center of Excellence for Parkinson’s Disease Research Presents: Parkinson's Disease Research Update, Wednesday, October 30th, 2019

12:30 PM to 1:30 PM

4130 Undergraduate Science Building, 204 Washtenaw Ave, Ann Arbor 48109

Abstract:

I will briefly present basic methods and concepts of brain network based on pairwise covariance of brain regions derived from nuclear medicine imaging This will be applied to the analysis of longitudinal changes in brain cholinergic pathways (18F-FEOBV PET) connectome in Parkinson’s disease.
