The cerebro-vasculature is crucial in maintaining brain tissue health during rest as well as supporting the increased demands for oxygen during functional activations. In this talk I’ll briefly introduce noninvasive MR techniques to measure resting cerebral blood flow and cerebral vascular reactivity to hypercapnia. Then I’ll review how these techniques have been applied to study mild traumatic brain injury, as well as present results from a pilot post-injury study on female club athletes.

Studying the brain poses a “big data” challenge because there are many regions of interest and sample sizes are typically relatively small. Using conventional analysis approaches, investigators are forced to either choose between limiting their analyses to one or two specific regions of interest or sacrificing statistical power. This webinar will focus on methods of analyzing very large datasets of brain-based data using data analytic approaches.
