A brain connectivity analysis software using graph theory. BRAPH 2.0


There is increasing evidence showing that graph theory is a promising tool to study the human brain connectome. By representing brain regions and their connections as nodes and edges, it allows assessing properties that reflect how well brain networks are organized and how they become disrupted in neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, schizophrenia, multiple sclerosis and autism. Here, we present BRAPH 2.0 (BRain Analysis using graPH theory version 2.0), which is a major update of the first object-oriented open source software written in MATLAB for graph-theoretical analysis that also implements a graphical interface (GUI). BRAPH utilizes the capability of object-oriented programming paradigm to provide clear, robust, clean, modular, maintainable, and testable code.


Hi, my name is Emiliano Gómez and I am currently working at the Soft matter lab group under Giovanni Volpe. I have a degree in Physics from UNAM and have experience doing software applications. I’m interested in AI and graph theory applications in medicine.
