I am no longer at the MNI - I now use functional MRI to study
human visual cortex with Roger Tootell, Anders Dale and Bruce Rosen at
the NMR Center of the
Massachusetts General Hospital.
But I am also (gulp) a PhD student in the Department of Neurology
& Neurosurgery in McGill University. My original background is in
electrical engineering, but I work with functional neuroimaging. Just
like everyone else at the Brain Imaging Center. My PhD work concerns
the coupling between focal changes in neural activity and oxidative
metabolism in human visual cortex. My supervisor(s) are Albert Gjedde
(who is at the Aarhus PET
Center in Denmark) and Alan Evans.
Here is a dated list of representative
publications and also a few abstracts.. There is
some more stuff out that has my name on it due to the honest effort of
Some software projects Two projects that I am particularly
proud of, although I didn't do any of the hard work. Numero uno was a
data-acquisition system for quantitative PET studies. It was designed
constructed and documented by Mark Wolforth
who called the system
BloodLab . It is now used routinely for studies at the MNI that
require blood sampling.
The second was an enviroment for analyzing PET data, especially
dynamic PET data, using the MATLAB numerical analysis enviroment. This
project (known as
EMMA was designed, implemented and coded by Mark Wolforth and Greg Ward .
Obligatory image dose: These images demonstrate increases of
oxygen metabolism in visual cortex both after sustained stimulation
ans also during different stimulus conditions after 3 minutes of
In Real Life
No such thing.
