Dear all,

The Donders Institute of Brain, Cognition and Behaviour is pleased to announce an international workshop 'Connectomes', a workshop in memoriam of Rolf Kötter (1961-2010), Professor and Chair of the Section Neurophysiology & Neuroinformatics at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Radboud University Nijmegen. Rolf has been a pioneer in the field of connectomics and his work continues to have an impact across a variety of research areas.

This workshop will feature scientific talks, discussing the current state of the art in Connectomics: connectivity databasing, graph-theoretic analysis of brain networks, neuromodelling in the clinical context, resting-state functional connectivity and integrated modelling architecture and connectivity.

The workshop will be followed by the Donders Lecture by David van Essen (Washington University in St. Louis) titled "Mapping structure, function and connectivity in primate cerebral cortex"



Stan Gielen (Radboud University Nijmegen)


Rembrandt Bakker (Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Research Center Jülich)
