Abstract :
[en] A defining aspect of brain organization is its spatial heterogeneity, which gives rise to multiple topographies at different scales. Brain parcellation — defining distinct partitions in the brain, be they areas or networks that comprise multiple discontinuous but closely interacting regions — is thus fundamental for understanding brain organization and function. The past decade has seen an explosion of in vivo MRI-based approaches to identify and parcellate the brain on the basis of a wealth of different features, ranging from local properties of brain tissue to long-range connectivity patterns, in addition to structural and functional markers. In this talk, I will introduce brain parcellation and provide an overview of the main approaches. I will then focus more particularly on connectivity-based parcellation (CBP) applied to different connectivity features. This will lead us to discuss convergence and divergence across features and the related open challenges. Articles discussed: Eickhoff, S. B., Yeo, B. T. T., & Genon, S. (2018).
