Collins Conference Room
Working Group

This event is by invitation only.

Meeting Description:  In this inaugural working group on Cognitive Regime Shift, complexity tools and models developed to understand network phenomena in physiological, sociological, ecological, and financial realms will be applied to better understand the loss of cognitive function. The central goal is to achieve synthesis and integration between neurology and several areas of complexity science bearing on network failure, such that interventions for increasing long-term adaptability of the brain might be found. Critical questions that will be raised during the working group include relationship between network failure, adaptation and robustness to system aging, early indicators for risk factors, application of criticality, long-range order, and collective dynamic to the aging brain, and specific aspects of the above to Alzheimer’s.
