Small Science Brain Imaging in the Era of Big Data

Speaker: Francisco Xavier Castellanos, MD, Director of Research at the NYU Child Study Center

Dr. Castellanos is Brooke and Daniel Neidich Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in the department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU. He also serves as professor at NYU's Department of Radiology and the Department of Physiology and Neuroscience.

Dr. Castellanos’ focus is on the neuronal substrates of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and related conditions. He has been involved in structural and functional brain imaging studies of ADHD for over two decades and will review trends towards big data large scale studies in the field. He will also address the role of targeted “small science” studies, such as an ongoing study aimed at detecting brain functional changes in response to organizational skills training in elementary school age children.

Presentation Objectives:
1) Discuss the challenges of understanding the complexity of the human brain with current methods
2) Evaluate whether recent developments in open science represent meaningful progress
3) List the contexts/paradigms in which “small science” approaches remain relevant and essential
