New Software Improves Ability to Determine the Cause of Stroke

Determining the cause of an ischemic stroke is critical to preventing a second one and is a primary focus in the evaluation of stroke patients. But for all the importance of identifying the cause, physicians have long lacked a robust and objective means to do so. Now a team of investigators at...

Noam Peled

I have a broad background in neuroimaging, with specific training and expertise in analyzing and visualization of multi-modality neuroimaging datasets. I received my Ph.D. degree in machine learning and games theory from Bar-Ilan University in 2014, and in 2015 I started my position as a research...

Andre van der Kouwe

Dr. van der Kouwe does research in the field of MRI pulse sequence design and image analysis. He supports neuroscience research at the MGH and collaborating institutions by improving acquisition methods, providing techniques such as high-reliability imaging for quantitative brain morphometry with...

Martinos Executive Director Named a 2017 Eisenhower Fellow

Eisenhower Fellowships has announced Bill Shaw, the Executive Director of the MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, as one of 20 U.S. leaders who will participate in a global exchange of knowledge and ideas. Now in its 63rd year, the organization brings together participants from governm...

Suk-tak (Phoebe) Chan

Dr. Chan joined the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at MGH in 2010 as an instructor.  Her current research focuses on imaging of cerebrovascular responses using ultrasound and MRI. She uses natural breathing/gaseous challenge to measure cerebrovascular responses in healthy sub...

New Bedside MRI Scanner Inspired by Martinos Center Research

Fundamental research by Professor Matthew Rosen, Director of the Low-Field Imaging Laboratory in the MGH Martinos Center, contributed to the early development of a new portable MRI scanner by Hyperfine Research Inc. The potentially game-changing technology will be introduced this week at the Amer...

Shahin Nasr

For the past 15 years, Shahin Nasr, PhD, has studied the visual system of humans and non-human primates using a variety of techniques, from psychophysics and event-related potentials (ERP) to conventional and high-resolution functional MRI, in order to understand the neural mechanisms underlying ...

Julie Price

One of the Center's newest senior faculty members, Julie Price, PhD, brings to the Martinos community a wealth of experience with quantitative positron emission tomography (PET). With this technique, researchers study the dynamics of the PET radiotracer in vivo in order to obtain absolute measure...

Jyrki Ahveninen

Dr. Ahveninen's mission is to apply novel and improved techniques to achieve more accurate estimates of human brain function than previously achieved. His work focuses on neuroimaging of human auditory system, auditory working memory and higher-order auditory cognition using techniques including ...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Berkin Bilgic

MRI has demonstrated ability to provide exquisite contrast for non-invasive imaging. What limits its efficiency and sensitivity are the tradeoffs between scan time, resolution and signal-to-noise ratio. Dr. Bilgic's research is devoted to breaking this stalemate by developing new acquisition and ...

Roberta Sclocco

Dr. Sclocco has a background in bioengineering and signal processing, with specific training in non-invasive neuroimaging (e.g., fMRI, EEG) and peripheral autonomic data analyses. Since the beginning of her career, she have been interested in the interactions between the central and peripheral au...

5 Things You Didn’t Know About David Cohen and MEG

Last week the MGH Martinos Center dedicated its advanced magnetoencephalography (MEG) facility as the David Cohen MEG Laboratory. Cohen—the inventor of MEG, a leader in the field of biomagnetism for more than 50 years, and a Martinos Center faculty member who was instrumental in building and deve...
