Prof. Kaleem Siddiqi

Title: Small animal vascular imaging in cancer research

Speaker: Prof. Martin Lepage, Institute de pharmacologie de Sherbrooke, Université de Sherbrooke

Abstract: The vascular system is part of every human disease and contributes relevant information about the human brain function. Detection of very small blood vessels may be achieved by magnetic resonance imaging but there are still limits and our view of the vascular system is still biased towards larger vessels. Characterization of the blood vessel permeability is even more challenging as a high temporal resolution is required in addition to a high spatial resolution. Strategies involving rapid image acquisition and the combination of microscopic with macroscopic information have been recently developed.

Prof. Pierre-Marc Jodoin

Title: Deep convolution neural nets for segmenting medical images : why are we facing a new revolution?

Speaker: Prof. Pierre-Marc Jodoin, Faculté des Sciences, Informatique, Université de Sherbrooke

Abstract: In the last 2 years, a growing number of medical image segmentation challenges have been won by deep learning methods.  In this presentation, I will revise what deep convolutional neural nets are, how they work, and how they can be applied to segment medical images.  I will also emphasize what makes these methods so successful and why they are more than just the flavor of the month.

Prof. Kaleem Siddiqi

Title: Neuroimaging methods to study motor control

Speaker: Prof. Pierre-Michel Bernier, Faculté des sciences de l'activité physique, Université de Sherbrooke

Abstract: Although the cortical regions that participate in human motor control are fairly well characterized, the mechanisms by which these regions interact during movement are still unknown. This talk will present some recent methodological advances that have allowed to better capture the spatio-temporal dynamics of neural activity in motor networks, and as a result provided valuable insights into the functional contribution of these regions.
