Description of Research Group

The research in my lab has focused on developing techniques and translational applications for advanced MR imaging methods.  Recent work has focused in the areas of diffusion tensor MRI (DTI), diffusion tensor tractography (DTT), perfusion MRI (pMRI), and resting state functional MRI (rsfMRI). From the technical side our lab is very interested in the use of mathematical methods to model brain physiology. From the clinical side our lab has focused on the normal and abnormal development of the brain in childhood, and on the effects of various neuropathologies on the structure of the brain as measured with advanced imaging methods
