Research Abstract:

The focus of our lab has been on translational application of MRI and on modeling of neurophysiology as measured with MRI techniques. We have ongoing projects involving three distinct MRI methods: 1) Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Tractography; 2) Resting state functional MRI; and 3) Perfusion Imaging using DSC, DCE, and ASL methods.
