Titre de la conférence : Neuroimaging to uncover (neuro)psychological processes in disease and its role in neurosurgical planning

Résumé :  Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful and versatile tool to uncover processes in the brain which can aid researchers and clinicians in understanding observed (neuro)psychological states and traits in health and disease. With MRI we are capable of determining changes in cortical thickness, we can assess the microstructure of white matter tracts and the functioning of the brain at rest or in response to a task, calculate cerebral perfusion without the need of radioactive contrast agents, but it can also be used to apply more complex graph theoretical approaches and machine learning to improve diagnostic processes. In this talk I will show how MR imaging, both functional and structural, has helped us to better understand cognitive decrements, depressive symptoms and its treatment resistance, and how it is now being used to determine the neural correlates of diabetes-related distress, a major factor in poorer self-care in people with type 1 diabetes. Through the neural effects of pharmacological and surgical interventions in obesity and type 2 diabetes, the cerebral correlates of medical decision-making in Alzheimer’s disease and brain network alterations in MS and epilepsy, I will end the talk by presenting some examples of functional MRI and white matter microstructure in neurosurgery cases to determine surgery risk. Highlighting clinical cases, I will show the utility of these approaches in clinical practice and their value for the multidisciplinary medical team.
