Does this rigmarole of numbers/Data glittering on my screen have any role in service of humanity or, or, or…? This question always haunted me when I was a BS (HONs) student in University of Gujrat a few years back. Then an image of the brain at the office door of my Head of Department pulled me in and my same question to the HOD brought me around a mind blowing response that unfolded new horizons of knowledge to me about Statistics applications. I became a member of his team working on Neuroimaging and Neuro-Statistics. I completed my MASTER in Statistics from Yunnan University, Kunming, China. My thesis was on Brain Connectivity in Alzheimer’s disease using 4 years fMRI voxels data by utilizing Structural equation modeling.
I have a natural inclination towards fMRI voxels data especially for brain connectivity which was to be used to identify the possible relationship among brain regions. Further how these relationships change by any stimulus. The key message of the lighting field is that lighting is not neutral in terms of human health and performance: It could make or break human health and cognitive functioning. The current research was the need of the hour. I am working on Brain connectivity of highly affected brain regions using multivariate methods which will be used to understand how brain regions relate to each other and how connectivity changes.
