Student wins Biomag 2010 "Connectivity Challenge Award"

Congratulations go to Daniel Wakeman (left), a PhD student at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit, Cambridge, who has been awarded one of the two main prizes for the Biomag 2010 "Connectivity Challenge Award".

This award recognises the commendable spirit of scientific data sharing shown by the contributors. The purpose of this award is to encourage the development and validation of innovative methodologies to study structural-functional connectivity patterns underlying human sensory and cognitive processing. The award serves as a first step toward this goal by creating a repository of data, to enable studies of connectivity, that will be freely accessible to all members of the biomag community.

As an award winner Dan will be making multimodal datasets (for a visual example of such a dataset, see right) from 19 participants available freely for scientists to help develop methods for integrating functional and structural MRI data with data from electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetoencephalography (MEG).

Dan is supervised by Cambridge Neuroscientist Dr. Rik Henson at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit.
