Bridging scales with neuroimaging: challenges and opportunities

Date and time: 30 november 2017, 4:30pm

Neuroimaging provides unique opportunities to address one of the grand challenges in neuroscience: relating structure and function over many orders of magnitude. I will focus on different aspects of scale (space, time and people), and how the next generation of MRI methods will enable us to face this challenge. Themes will include adopting a synergistic approach to acquisition and analysis; relating neuroimaging tools to complementary techniques; and the new era of population neuroimaging.

Karla Miller develops novel methods for acquiring, reconstructing and analyzing MRI scans of the brain. Her early research focused on techniques for studying brain function and connectivity. More recently, she has also begun to develop techniques for studying tissue microstructure with MRI, including the use of complementary technologies like microscopy.
