Research Proposal and Milestone

  1. 1. The Research Proposal and Milestone Speaker : Jimmy Lu Advisor : Hsing Mei Web Computing Laboratory(WECO Lab) Computer Science and Information Engineering Department Fu Jen Catholic University
  2. 2. Outline 2015/1/30 2 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  The steps of defining the brain components  The network approach for modeling Alzheimer’s disease  Implementation details  Expected results  The milestone
  3. 3. What am I doing 2015/1/30 3 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  A brain simulator that simulates structural dynamics of the human brain.  A network dynamics approach for modeling the Alzheimer’s disease.  Define the brain components by utilizing object-oriented concept.
  4. 4. The Brain Components 2015/1/30 4 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  There are a lot of components in the human brain, it is extremely complex and makes me confused even I’ve studied neuroanatomy. Is there any reference to help me to define the components?  Wikipedia -> Human Brain
  5. 5. The Brain Components 2015/1/30 5 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  However it is still too many components that I can’t completely define them  Find out the most relevant part to the Alzheimer’s disease  Find out the most relevant part with acetylcholine
  6. 6. The Connections 2015/1/30 6 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  How about the connections?  Find out the connections from the context of the books of neruoanatomy or the wikipedia.  Use existing imaging tools to finds out the structural or functional connectivity. Getting imaging data first. Ex: Diffusion tensor imaging data.
  7. 7. How to utilizing OO concept? 2015/1/30 7 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  It seems that object-oriented concept are quite suitable for defining components of the human brain.  However it is not appropriate to use “inheritance” concepts only.  I need more powerful tools.  Design pattern[1]
  8. 8. Design Patterns 2015/1/30 8 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net
  9. 9. Network approach model 2015/1/30 9 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  The internet, peer-to-peer, error and attack tolerance of complex networks[2], network damage models[3]  Key element: acetylcholine
  10. 10. How to verify the model 2015/1/30 10 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  Compare to image data
  11. 11. Expected Results 2015/1/30 11 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  A simple brain structural simulator which simulate the dynamics of brain structural connectivity of AD.  A model which describes how ACh effect on the brain of AD patients.  Library of the brain components and the connections.
  12. 12. Milestone 2015/1/30 12 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  October ~ February:  Define components and connections of the human brain  Implementation  Model  February ~ April:  Modification and verification  Thesis writing
  13. 13. Milestone 2015/1/30 13 WECO Lab, CSIE dept., FJU http://www.weco.net  May:  Prepare oral presentation  Thesis revision
