12/2018 - A personalized mathematical tool for neuro-oncology: A clinical case study

This work evaluates the predictive ability of a novel personalized computational tool for simulating the growth of brain tumours using the neuroimaging data collected during one clinical case study. The mathematical model consists of an evolutionary fourth-order partial differential equation with degenerate motility, in which the spreading dynamics of the multiphase tumour is coupled with […]

06/2018 - The memory of science: Inflation, myopia, and the knowledge network

Scientific production is steadily growing, exhibiting 4% annual growth in publications and 1.8% annual growth in the number of references per publication, together producing a 12-year doubling period in the total supply of references, i.e. links in the science citation network. This growth has far-reaching implications for how academic knowledge is connected, accessed and evaluated. […]

06/2018 - Tractography–Based Atlas of the Healthy Cortico-Spinal Tract

The corticospinal tract is a critical white matter pathway as it connects the primary motor cortex to the spinal cord and handles voluntary motion. Atlases of major brain connections do exist, but, surprisingly, atlases that depict the actual localisation of a specific pathway are missing. In this work, we propose a comprehensive statistical methodology for […]
