I will discuss a range of recent methods we’ve used to quantify patterns in human and mouse brain-imaging data. In the first half of the talk, I’ll present some work showing how neural dynamics can be usefully encoded as a diverse, interpretable feature vector using highly comparative time-series analysis. I will highlight some recent applications of this approach to human and mouse fMRI datasets, and describe the tools we’ve developed to allow other researchers to use similar methods on their data. In the second half of the talk I’ll discuss research we’ve done into the brain’s spatial heterogeneity by combining gene-expression, connectivity, and other structural data. I’ll highlight some of the key lessons we’ve learned from working with gene-expression atlas data in mouse and human.
