High-resolution fMRI Lab


My lab is developing acquisition and analysis methods for high-resolution fMRI in humans. In particular, we are trying to image mesoscopic human brain function using MRI at 7 Tesla. To that end, novel fMRI sequences are developed and tested, analysis pipeline developed, and physiological model of ascending vein effects are applied to the data to remove spatial bias in the fMRI signal. In addition, we are interested in quantitative MRI approaches at 7 Tesla to study subcortical brain organization and cortical brain parcellation in both healthy subjects and patients. Finally, the lab pursues modeling brain connectivity using physiological principles and advanced computational approaches.
