Please join us on Wednesday, October 3, 2023, 1:00 PM, for the next CIC Imaging Series.
A fundamental question across the brain sciences is the extent to which males and females differ from one another in terms of brain, behaviour, and brain-behaviour relationships. In this talk, I will provide an overview of how machine learning predictive modelling approaches can be leveraged to study the neurobiological correlates of sex, gender, and distinct behaviours across healthy and clinical populations. I will then present findings from a series of studies evaluating whether shared or unique neural correlates underlie cognitive abilities, mental health traits, and psychiatric diagnoses in males and females. Finally, I will argue that these predictive modelling approaches can provide us with clinically-relevant insights that can subsequently inform the development of personalised early intervention and diagnostic strategies for psychiatric illnesses.
