Functional and Structural Brain Connectivity using MRI

Work in our lab is focused on exploring the relations between brain structure, function and behavior using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We're using state-of-the-art MRI methodologies to study inter- and intra- subject variability in brain connectivity and use behavioral experiments to study whole-brain neuroplasticity.


Specifically, we develop models to predict individual differences in brain activity and human behavior from brain structure and connectivity measurements. We also study learning-related brain plasticity by developing behavioral tasks that induce functional and structural brain modifications and investigate the underline mechanisms of functional neuroplasticity as measured with fMRI. We also work on advanced statistical modeling of MRI data.
