Project Description: Mentalizing is a higher cognitive ability that is vital for the social life of an individual. New brain imaging techniques have investigated neural circuits involved in mentalizing the most. The goal of this project is to leverage open neurological data to try and gain the scale in the mentalizing abilities confounders like disease/healthy state, cultural background of the individuals etc., utilizing the state-of-the-art knowledge of the topography of underlying circuits.
Data to use: openneuro.org. I have thought of T1 in the first place (i.e. structural changes)

Goals for Brainhack Global 2020:
Good first issues:
Skills: MRI imaging, structural MRI, basic neuropsychology, mentalizing & empathy psychology
Tools/Software/Methods to Use: Your imaging analysis tool & language (suggested: Python, Julia), OpenNeuro, DataLad, [Brainlife] (brainlife.io)
