Computational Neurosciences for Clinical Neuroradiology - CANCUN



ERC Sectors

LS2_10 - Bioinformatics
LS2_14 - Biological systems analysis, modelling and simulation
LS5_10 - Neuroimaging and computational neuroscience


CANCUN is part of the Department of Neuroscience of the University of Turin and carries out research in collaboration with the Department of Neuroscience of the University Hospital "Città della Salute e della Scienza", Presidio Molinette, and with the Department of Radiology and Neuradiology of San Giovanni Bosco. The group includes scientists from different backgrounds: doctors, IT, statisticians and physicists. The goal of the group is the use of modern computational and simulation / modeling techniques to improve the understanding of human neurocognitive architecture (both normal and pathological).
In recent years the research activity has been expanded thanks to national and international collaborations both on the biotechnological and on the computational side: Nico van den Berg (Computational Imaging group for MRI diagnostics and therapy, Centre of Image Sciences, UMC Utrecht), Natalia Petridou (7T Group, Centre of Image Sciences, UMC Utrecht), Luca Lavagnino (Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, McGovern Medical School, University of Texas at Houston), Silvia Gazzin (Italian Liver Foundation -Onlus).
