Novel analytical methods to investigate correspondences between brain networks in human and non-human primates

Primate evolution has been accompanied by complex reorganizations in brain  anatomy and function. Little is known, however, about the relationship between  anatomical and functional changes induced through primate evolution. Using  functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), spatial and temporal between  cortical networks in human and non-human primates (NHPs) can be assessed. In  this talk, I will introduce novel analytical methods based on fMRI data to investigate  these correspondences. The results obtained with these methods confirmed the  existence of networks whose topology and function are similar between humans and NHP, but also suggested that functions of structurally preserved networks can diverge over time and that novel networks have emerged during evolution.
