The brain is composed of complex functional networks, which adapt to changes in the environment. This process of adaptation called “cerebral plasticity”, may be, for example, in reaction to a cerebral lesion, the result of training or the effect of normal development. In the past ten years, the study of this concept has profited from major progress in the field of cognitive neuroscience, and from a better understanding of cerebral organization and the use of new functional imaging techniques, in particular. The aim of the present workshop on cerebral plasticity and imaging techniques is to bring together international experts in clinical and experimental neuroscience, neuroimaging methodology and mathematics, with a special interest in cerebral plasticity, functional connectivity and modelling. The focus will be on new developments in cognitive models, mathematical/statistical models and imagery including fMRI, EEG/MEG and optical imaging techniques.
