> Prof. Poldrack’s talk is entitled:
> "(How) can neuroimaging inform the architecture of the mind?”
> The abstract:
> “Many modern sciences have undergone conceptual revolutions, but the ontology of scientific psychology is largely the same as it was in the 19th Century. I will discuss the limitations of common neuroimaging approaches for providing a new characterization of the organization of mental functions, and discuss approaches that may have the ability to enable data-driven discovery of mental structure from neuroimaging data. I will also discuss the limitations of natural language ontologies and the need for new languages in which to express ontologies of mental function, including computation and dynamical systems.”
> Russell A. Poldrack is the Albert Ray Lang Professor in the Department of Psychology, and Director of the Stanford Center for Open and Reproducible Science. His research uses neuroimaging to understand the brain systems underlying decision making and executive function. His lab is also engaged in the development of neuroinformatics tools to help improve the reproducibility and transparency of neuroscience, including the Openneuro.org and Neurovault.org data sharing projects and the Cognitive Atlas ontology.
