My research is focused on the data acquisition and processing for imaging brain function using magnetic resonance imaging (functional MRI or fMRI). Projects include development of rapid image acquisition techniques, post-processing and analysis methods, methods for elimination of movement and other artifacts, characterization and quantification of the fMRI response through physiological modeling, development of systems and methods for parallel excitation in MRI, and development of image reconstruction methods. As part of Functional MRI Laboratory, this group collaborates with a broad range of neuroscientist to develop an understanding of the organization and functioning of the normal and diseased brain and to apply the technological advances to quantitative imaging of brain function in a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Recent collaborations include work to use MRI to guide and monitor focused ultrasound therapy (e.g. histotripsy).
