Title: Computational methods for longitudinal studies of structural brain 
connectivity

Topic: machine learning / pattern recognition for diffusion MRI data analysis

Description: Diffusion MRI provides indirect information of the
anatomical structure of the white matter of the
brain. Neurological diseases and brain disorders may introduce
alterations in such structures. Additionally, after neurosurgery
and cognitive rehabilitation, there may be reorganization of the
white matter. The goal of this project is to design computational
methods to detect and characterize white matter changes over
time, disentangling the intrinsic variability of brain recordings
from actual anatomical changes, in order to support
neuroscientific and clinical inference.
