    our mission

    Our lab's research is focused on the development of multidimensional and multimodal neuroimaging biomarkers using the tools of computational anatomy. Working with collaborators from engineering, mathematics, psychology and clinical specialties, we focus on the following major areas: automated pipelines for mapping of brain structures using MRI, development of complex neuroimaging biomarkers, clinical applications in dementia, psychosis, mood disorders and genetics, neuroinformatics, and neuroimaging of animal models.
