Our lab's research objective is to develop innovative and robust methods to measure tissue parameters with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and then apply these approaches to learn more about disease or healthy development. A key component for this research is the development of advanced diffusion MRI methods, which provide exquisite sensitivity to cellular microstructural environment. This type of virtual microscopy of the brain allows characterization of in vivo tissue changes that occur in disorders or normal development/learning, which can help us to understand the brain’s complex inner workings, providing insight for the development of interventions or diagnostic tools.
