In this talk, I will outline our quest to investigate the role of advanced computational tools in understanding brain functions and its related disorders. More specifically, I will present solutions based on interpretable machine learning to (1) integrate multi-modal spatio-temporal data collected from the brain (and body) in both microscopic and macroscopic resolutions, (2) predict functions of biological systems in different resolutions, and (3) determine the functional differences across neurological disorders.
