Understanding brain disorders
Computational and statistical approaches have the potential to help understand the pathophysiology of brain disorders. We first aim to contribute to better understand the relationships between pathological processes, anatomical and functional alterations, and symptoms. Moreover, within a single disease, there is an important variability between patients. The models that we develop have the potential to identify more homogeneous disease subtypes, that would constitute more adequate targets for new treatments. Finally, we aim to establish the chronology of the different types of alterations. We focus these activities on neurodegeneratives diseases: dementia (Alzheimer's disease, fronto-temporal dementia), Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis.
