Our lab develops data science techniques for brain mapping in health and disease. We are interested in modelling complex, high dimensional, network dynamics of brain structure and function using neuroimaging. We use our models to integrate empirical data from multiple modalities (e.g., fMRI and diffusion MRI) to investigate basic disease mechanisms in neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer disease and Frontotemporal Dementia) and psychiatric disorders (e.g., Schizophrenia and Autism).
Before establishing this lab at Monash, Adeel worked as Senior Research Associate, from 2012 – 2018, at Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging (`The FIL’) of UCL where he was mentored by Karl Friston and Geraint Rees to develop brain connectivity (generative) models using functional neuroimaging. He also worked in close collaboration with Sarah Tabrizi and Jason Warren to investigate pathophysiology of various neurodegenerative diseases. These collaborations are now continuing with his appointment as an `Honorary’ Senior Research Associate at UCL.
-- Adeel has started tenure as the (founding) member of the newly constituted Education Committee of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping.
-- Our paper received an ``Honourable Mention” for the Best Paper of Year Award from Neuroimage at OHBM 2018 in Singapore. Neuroimage receives more than 3000 papers every year with an acceptance rate of only 10-15%.
-- We are hiring PhD students!
-- Adeel will be lecturing at the Australian Connectomics School, 30 May – 01 June 2018, in Melbourne, Australia.
-- Adeel will give an invited talk at the 6th Resting State and Brain Connectivity Conference, 26-28 Sep 2018, in Montreal, Canada.
-- Adeel’s slides from the SPM short course of May 2017 on DCM for resting state fMRI.
-- Adeel will give an invited talk at the BrainModes 2016, 1-2 Dec, Brussels, Belgium.
-- Adeel will be talking at the Educational Workshop of 5th Resting State Conference in Vienna. I will also give an oral presentation on “Parametric Empirical Bayes for Spectral DCM” during the main conference.
