Big Data and the Human Experience of the Developing Brain
April 6 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Saonli Basu, Professor, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota
Mark Fiecas, Assistant Professor, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota
Experts in statistical and computational tools for analyzing big data, Professors Saonli Basu and Mark Fiecas speak about how they guide researchers studying the developing brain. While much of their work involves specialized skills and technical knowledge, Professors Basu and Fiecas will speak in layman’s terms about the role of big data in brain research and how it informs our understanding of the human experience, specifically about our perceptions around the changing cognitive and behavioral patterns we live through—and witness in others—as we age from childhood through adolescence to adulthood.
