About The Author

Ixavier A. Higgins is a PhD Candidate in biostatistics in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at Emory University.   He develops methods for efficiently estimating functional brain networks and linking features in the high dimensional network objects to clinical outcomes.  More recently, he works on method  to estimate dynamic functional connectivity in healthy and diseased populations. Prior to Emory, he obtained a BS in Mathematical Economics and a MA in mathematics from Wake Forest University.

The Structure Of Spontaneous Brain Activity

Despite its modest physical profile -- approximately three pounds of water and fatty tissue -- the brain is the most important and complex organ in the human body. The human brain regulates physiological processes while concurrently allowing us to interpret and interact with the world around us. Advances in imaging technology over the last century have ushered critical insights into the brain’s anatomy and function. Current research efforts seek new methods to robustly estimate associations in the functional activity of...
