The goal of the presentation is to start a discussion about where neuroimaging may provide useful contributions to population science. The talk will be comprised of four parts. First, there will be a short introduction to neuroimaging with a focus on functional MRI (fMRI). Second, I will discuss what information neuroimaging data does (and does not) provide and why it might be important for population scientists. Third, I will provide two examples of neuroimaging studies from my lab. Finally, I will give an overview of a current project that brings together neuroimaging with a population-based, representative sample.
