The UK Biobank is currently conducting the most ambitious imaging study ever undertaken, scanning 100,000 subjects, with brain imaging as a key component. In this talk, I'll overview the Biobank neuroimaging resource, which includes six separate imaging modalities. I'll then present several studies that highlight how this resource is already revolutionising the neuroimaging field by enabling both discovery science and hypothesis-driven research that previously would not have been possible.
