MR Neuroimaging Lab

The MR Neuroimaging Laboratory’s research is focused on MRI methods and applications for basic and clinical neuroscience. Our primary focus has been the detection and measurement of the physiological modulations that are involved in neuronal activation. We also study other MRI techniques such as magnetization transfer (MT) imaging and diffusion imaging.

The MR Neuroimaging Lab research activites can be divided into two broad themes: anatomical and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain. We are funded by numerous operating grants from various Quebec, Canadian, and US agencies (FQRNT, RRTQ, CIHR, NSERC, MSSC, NIH) and our lab averages approximately 12 graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and research assistants. Within each theme there are 2–3 primary projects that account for most of the research activity. In addition to these research projects, we also collaborate on numerous projects locally, nationally, and internationally.
