Center for Multiscale Imaging of Brain Function

Our goal is to enable the interpretation of noninvasive brain imaging signals in terms of the underlying cellular, molecular, and neuronal circuit activity. This will be achieved through development/implementation of novel instrumentation, engineering of specific probes, and system-level analysis/modeling. Application of these technologies will lead to better understanding of normal human brain function and new ways of treating brain disorders
