Scientists can use imaging techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to study the developing brain. In this workshop, Damien Fair, a professor at Oregon Health and Science University, talks about how these techniques are used to explore ways to better characterize developmental brain disorders like autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to help guide future research into therapies.

In this final section of a three-part series, Fair discusses how scientists analyze and understand brain networks.

Watch the first part of Fair’s lecture in part one of this series, or watch part two for a related hands-on activity.
