Innovation in data science and translational neuroscience to understand brain development and mental illness


  Our research uses advanced analytics to integrate complex brain images and rich behavioral data.   Ultimately, we seek to map normal brain development and understand how alterations in brain maturation increase risk of psychiatric illness.

Leveraging multi-shell diffusion for studies of brain development in youth and young adulthood

We find key advantages of multi-shell diffusion metrics, including increased neurodevelopmental coupling and decreased spurious relationships with imaging data quality.
