The Four (brain) Ages of Man


Professor Cole will talk about his research career to date, with a particular focus on neuroimaging as a tool to address clinical needs for neurological and psychiatric disease. He will expound upon four career stages, from undergraduate Psychology to a PhD in psychiatric neuroimaging genetics, to his work on the brain-age paradigm, and finally his current role at UCL. He will propound his perspective on the power of statistical modelling, machine learning and artificial intelligence to harness neuroimaging and related healthcare data to better understand and promote brain health throughout life
