Projects

Measuring functional connectivity (FC) between brain regions using resting state fluctuations of MRI signals (rsfMRI) on monkeys and relating fMRI metrics of connectivity directly to invasive, "gold standard" measurements of neural activity in non-human primates with high sensitivity and spatial resolution to validate (or not) the neural basis of functional connectivity from rsfMRI.
