Deep Phenotyping of the Individual: Data Science Challenges and Opportunities
No two individuals are exactly the same, and each person experiences transitions over time that can affect brain function and behavior. Typically human neuroimaging analyses combine measurements from many people, providing a fictional “average brain” that collapses meaningful variation. Recently our work has turned to exploring the detailed organization of individual brains and how that organization differs across people and changes over time. This push toward the individual brain is critical for clinical translation as well as a number of open questions about how transient brain states influence behavior. In this talk I will survey some of the informatics challenges and discoveries that arose from our development of low-burden large-scale data acquisitions across thousands of individuals and how these approaches have been redeployed to study the individual brain over time.
Randy L. Buckner is Professor of Psychology and of Neuroscience at Harvard University and affiliated with the Center for Brain Science. He is also Professor at the Harvard Medical School and the Director for Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He received his Ph.D. degree in neuroscience from Washington University, under the direction of Steven Petersen and Marcus Raichle. He trained with Bruce Rosen as a postdoctoral fellow and then Instructor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School, where he pioneered new functional MRI methods to study human memory. His work expanded to include studies of Alzheimer's disease and neuropsychiatric illness. This work led to a description of the brain’s default network and how it is targeted early in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Over the past several years, his laboratory has targeted understanding the idiosyncratic organization of the brains of individuals. Professor Buckner’s awards include the Wiley Young Investigator Award from the Organization of Human Brain Mapping, the Young Investigator Award from the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, the 2007 Troland Research Award from the National Academy of Sciences, and the 2010 Award for Medical Research in Alzheimer’s Disease from the MetLife Foundation. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The mind-research network: Large-scale analysis of multimodal medical images
Dr. Calhoun is currently Executive Science Officer at the Mind Research Network and a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico. He is the author of more than 500 full journal articles and over 550 technical reports, abstracts and conference proceedings. His work includes the development of flexible methods to analyze functional magnetic resonance imaging such as independent component analysis (ICA), data fusion of multimodal imaging and genetics data, neuroinformatics, and the identification of biomarkers for disease. Among other things, he leads an NIH P20 COBRE center grant on multimodal imaging of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depression as well as an NSF EPSCoR grant focused on brain imaging and epigenetics of adolescent development. Dr. Calhoun is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, The Association for the Advancement of Science, The American Institute of Biomedical and Medical Engineers, The American College of Neuropsychopharmacology, and the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine.
The Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study
The ABCD Study is a landmark, nationwide longitudinal study focusing on health and mental health of adolescents. The consortium will enroll 11,500 children and perform repeated assessments that include multimodality MR imaging, biospecimen collection for genetic, epigenetic, hormonal, and other biomarker assays, and mobile technologies for passive data collection. In addition, multiple environmental factors will be assessed. The children will all be 9 or 10 years of age when enrolled and followed for 10 years. Some of the primary objectives of the study are to:
In this presentation, the emphasis will be on the open science model adopted by the ABCD Study, and on a description of the evolving data repository.
Dr. Terry Jernigan is Professor of Cognitive Science, Psychiatry, and Radiology, and Director, Centerfor Human Development at the University of California, San Diego. For over 30 years, she has studied the human brain using noninvasive imaging. This work has focused on brain development and aging, neurodevelopmental disorders, neuropsychiatric and substance use disorders, and neurodegenerative disorders. For the last decade her central research interest has been the developing human mind and brain, with a focus on the dynamic neurodevelopmental processes that give rise to human individuality—and on how these processes are affected by experience, substance exposure, genetic variation, and other factors. She is Co-Director of the Coordinating Center for the ABCD Study. She serves on the Council of Councils of the National Institutes of Health, and on the scientific advisory boards of several research organizations in the United States and Europe.
A project on scientific transparency
The complexity of neuroimaging data and methods limits our ability to check one another’s work. When Bob Dougherty and I developed the infrastructure for an MRI center at Stanford, we were determined to try to help investigators manage the large-scale neuroimaging data and to support them by providing computational tools. Our ambition was to provide an experimental environment that supports both sharing published data and the computational methods used to analyze the data.
I will describe the cloud-scale collaborative-science (CS)2 software tools we are developing to help scientists steward neuroimaging data and computations. Data from our instruments are directly imported into a database that is managed by the Center. Data sets are checked for completeness and critical functions (backups, quality assurance, file type conversion) are automated. Mechanisms for sharing platform-independent computations are part of the system. Our approach to making the system sustainable through a commercial entity will be described.
It is our view that the data and analytic software should be the heart of our publications; the accompanying article should describe the data and results so that colleagues can check one another’s work so that we can improve and extend published data and analytical methods.
Note. This work is in collaboration with Gunnar Schaefer, Michael Perry, and Renzo Frigato. We are grateful to the Simons Foundation and Arnold Foundation for their support and Victoria Stodden, Dave Donoho, and Mattan Gavish for useful discussions.
