A seminar was held dated on 26.Nov.2019 at the department of Cognitive neuroscience, which was attended together by students of Cognitive Neuroscience NCU as well as students of Yang Ming University. The distinguished guest speaker of the seminar was Dr. Frederic Dick, Professor of Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience, Birkbeck College & UCL. He also working as a Director at Birkbeck/UCL Centre for Neuroimaging, London, UK. He welcomed the participants and presented an interesting topic “What can we learn from in-vivo mapping of quantitative MRI parameters and cortical functional topology?” to all.
He shared his interesting findings in the domain of in -vivo mapping and MRI parameters. Understanding the structure of the human subcortical auditory pathway is essential step to investigate its part in hearing, speech communication and music. The organization of the auditory pathway is largely conserved across mammalian species. The multidimensional structure of cortex is assumed to guide and constrain functional organization, and indeed, combined in-vivo and post-mortem studies in non-human animals have long shown close relationships between aspects of cortical structure and functional preferences from the micro- to macroscopic level. He also shared that currently developments in in-vivo quantitative MRI allow us to measure small variation in physiologically-relevant signals that closely relate to myelin, macromolecular, and
Iron content - and to do so over the whole brain. Furthermore, he shared his current findings by using high-resolution quantitative MRI, typically paired with functional MR. The seminar was ended with a Question and Answering session, in which the students showed interests about his talk by asking more questions. In the post seminar session, he discussed his area of research and interest in the related field in detail. By attending the seminar, we hope together we can acquire a view in the related field.
