Research Interest

Research topic: Measuring in-vivo brain micro-structure and neuroplasticity with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in humans and rodents Research methods: Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Diffusion Imaging, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, Tractography; Immuno-histochemistry, Histology. Main projects in the lab include: Investigation and localization of brain regions that undergo plasticity following a cognitive experience or training with MRI Development of MRI frameworks that will characterize micro-structural parameters of neuronal tissue such as axon diameter distribution and cellular density Analysis of structural connectivity
