Research Projects


Project on Scientific Transparency

POST is a multi-site collaborative effort that aims to revolutionize the way that neuroscience imaging research is done by developing simple tools that permit investigators – from many disciplines and institutions – to share data and analytical methods in a way that increases scientific transparency and data exchange.


Quantitative MRI of Tissue Properties in the Human Brain

Our research group has developed a new MRI technique that produces remarkably precise and quantitative measurements of human brain tissue in vivo (Mezer et al., 2012; Mezer et al., 2013). The method will have significant scientific and clinical applications for understanding human cognition and neurological disease.


LiFE (Linear Fascicle Evaluation) is a computational tool to validate and perform statistical inference on the large-scale network of brain connections. This project contains a set of MatLab routines for evaluating the quality of white-matter connectomes generated using diffusion-weighted imaging and fiber tractography.
