The following is a description of the Webinar:
Please join us for a talk by Dr. Russell Poldrack, about the Cognitive Atlas, which is a collaborative knowledge building project that aims to develop a knowledge base (or ontology) that characterizes the state of current thought in cognitive science. Harmonization of this terminology with CogPO will be a portion of this discussion. Dr. Poldrack also runs the open fMRI data center and will discuss how terminology in the Cognitive Atlas impacts the data collection at open fMRI.
Russell Poldrack is a Professor of Psychology and Neurobiology at the University of Texas at Austin and the Cognitive Atlas is a collaboration with the UCLA Center for Computational Biology (A. Toga, PI) and UCLA Consortium for Neuropsychiatric Phenomics (R. Bilder, PI). It is supported by grant RO1MH082795 from the National Institute of Mental Health.
