Functional brain networks for diagnosis of mental disorders: a perspective from complex network theory and machine learning

Abstract: The lecture will focus on the diagnosis of neural diseases using functional brain networks reconstructed from fMRI and EEG data. To analyze functional networks, mathematical approaches based on the calculation of various metrics of network topology organization, as well as machine learning methods - LDA, graph neural networks and contrastive learning - are considered. The results of classification accuracy of patients with MDD and children with ASD using the above approaches are presented.
