The Personomics Lab, led by Janine Bijsterbosch, PhD, aims to understand how brain connectivity patterns differ from one person to the next by studying the personalized connectome. This variability across people can potentially be used to understand and predict differences in behavior, performance, mental state, disease risk, treatment response and physiology. Our research focuses on the following: characterizing connectivity using large-scale population studies with 100–100,000 individuals; developing and applying advanced connectomics analysis techniques; and differentiating between shared connectivity abnormalities and unique markers of disease through cross-diagnostic research.
The Personomics Lab is a diverse and interdisciplinary team with a research focus on studying complex connectivity patterns and their relation to health and disease.
The Personomics Lab is working on multiple projects with the ultimate aim of understanding individual differences in connectivity and their potential to predict risk and resilience to disease cross-diagnostically.
Janine Bijsterbosch, PhD, and colleagues have authored several primers on MRI-based neuroimaging research.
