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.
Developmental coupling of cerebral blood flow and fMRI fluctuations in youth
We demonstrate that non-invasive imaging proxies of neurovascular coupling in children undergo substantial maturation in youth, with evidence of both prominent sex differences and functional relevance to executive function.
