Dr. Georg Langs is Assistant Professor in the Computational Imaging Research Lab (Department of Biomedical Imaging and Image-guided Therapy, Medical University of Vienna). During his visit to NILab he held a presentation entitled "Correspondence revisited - decoupling anatomy and function in neuroimaging".There, he presented his findings about alignment of functional features across different brains.

He mainly talked about potential implications on tracking progress of disease using FMRI. He also talked about his research on resting state and on fetal / developing brains.

Dr. Langs met Vittorio Iacovella and they discussed about how to align brains through different sessions within FMRI longitudinal studies. Vittorio explained him MLMI 2013 work about using hyperalignment to disentangle plasticity and session effects in such studies. They also discussed about potential FMRI data sharing, to assess alignment procedures on different datasets.
Dr. Langs also met Sandro Vega Pons. They discussed about graph methods and their potential applications to alignment of FMRI data.
