Abdullah Ramadan grew up in Saudi Arabia and completed his BSc in physical therapy from King Abdulaziz University/ Saudi Arabia. He is a Master student in Department of Anatomy and Cell Science at University of Manitoba. His research interest in Neuroscience. The main focus is understanding the effects of L-Dopa on animal models of Parkinsonism.
In his spare time, he enjoys reading novels and watching soccer.
Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering
Vinay is aMSC student IN Biomedical engineering (SEPTEMBER 2017 - PRESENT)
Vinay hails from India where he completed his bachelors in Electronics and Communication Engineering. Having worked on Graph Theory Analysis of fMRI data for exploring Levodopa induced Dyskinesia for Parkinson’s patients in his internship with Mitacs, he became interested in field of brain imaging, more specifically in the potential of using graph theory for brain modelling to allow to account for brain functioning at voxel level.
His current work will involve using graph theory to visualize SSM-PCA resulting pattern from FDG-PET studies. He believes Graph theory serves as a powerful tool to characterize and quantify large scale structural and functional brain networks. In multivariate method like SSM/PCA, it helps to identify and visualize disease specific cerebral metabolic patterns in whole brain as well as in specific anatomic brain regions, which is often the objective in neuro-degenerative brain diseases’ research.
