Activities

Researchers in the Brain Imaging Lab apply morphologic techniques to study neurologic and psychiatric diseases.

Currently, we are focused on developing 2D morpholmetric methodologies for the diagnosis of neurological conditions. 2D methods are easy to use, objective and simple enough to be applied in daily clinical practice in busy departments.
