Student working on a research project.

Brain Connectivity Research Assistant

Modern magnetic resonance imaging techniques like diffusion tensor imaging and functional imaging can provide a wealth of information about the brain in both health and disease. We are collecting large datasets that can quantify brain connectivity, and need help analyzing them. In particular, we are looking for students to help with various sub-projects including: delineating brain regions, collecting and collating data, analyzing connectivity data, applying graph theory methods, and potentially helping develop software tools.
