Seminar: Modeling Dependence in Multivariate Time Series With Applications to Brain Signals

Everyone is invited to the special seminar on "Modeling Dependence in Multivariate Time Series With Applications to Brain Signals" by Prof. Hernando Ombao, Department of Statistics, University of California on November 27, 2012 (Tuesday) 4:00 p.m. at the INSTAT-Lecture Hall, 3F Physical Science Building.

 

In this talk, methods for characterizing dependence between components of a multivariate time series (e.g., between brain regions) shall be discussed. The interest in this area stems from a growing body of evidence suggesting that various neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, depression, and Parkinson’s disease may be associated with altered brain connectivity. This is joint work with Mark Fiecas (University of California at San Diego) and Cristina Gorrostieta (Brown) and Sofia Olhede (University College London).
