N atural disturbances and the biological legacies produced by them are often poorly understood by policy-makers and natural-resource managers. Recent large-scale natural disturbances include wildfires that burned nearly 10 million ha in Indonesia in 1997–98, 7 million ha in Russia, 5.4 million ha in Canada, and 4 million ha in Brazil (1–2). In forests ,(More)
Large –scale clinical studies in neuro-imaging are hampered by several factors including variances in acquisition techniques, quality assurance and access to remote datasets. The Neurogrid project will build on the experience of other UK e-science projects to assemble a grid infrastructure, and apply this to three exemplar areas: stroke, dementia and(More)
The paper draws on a number of Grid projects, particularly on the experience of NeuroGrid, a UK project in the Neurosciences tasked with developing a Grid-based collaborative research environment to support the sharing of digital images and patient data across multiple distributed sites. It outlines recurrent socio-technical issues, highlighting the(More)

Advances in neuroimaging have already led to breakthroughs in the clinical management of neurological disorders, with current developments holding comparable promise for neuro-psychiatric disorders. There are, however, key problems to be overcome before the large-scale clinical studies that will realise fully the potential benefits of modern imaging(More)
