In this talk, I will describe some bioinformatics and statistical challenges faced by new neuroimaging genetics studies that search through a very high number of associations between brain regions and genetic variations. I will review some current solutions proposed in the literature and show how multivariate techniques associated with variable selection can yield significant results when massive univariate analyses do not.
