Kenneth Kwong

Kenneth Kwong, PhD, has been conducting magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research for more than 30 years with expertise in diffusion (R.1), functional imaging (R.2) and perfusion imaging (R.3). He was one of the earliest researchers to explore MR diffusion imaging of healthy subjects and patients...

Nicole Zurcher Wimmer

Nicole Zürcher, PhD, is currently Assistant Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, a faculty member at the Martinos Center and the Director of Human Imaging in the Chemical Neuroscience Program. She has a background in biology, behavioral and social n...

Jason Stockmann

Jason Stockmann, PhD, is broadly interested in magnetic resonance imaging hardware and acquisition methods for improving data quality for both structural and functional imaging. He has worked on diverse MRI scanners ranging in field strength by two orders of magnitude, from low-field (80 mT) to u...

Lilla Zollei

Dr. Lilla Zollei's research focuses on the design and development of quantitative analysis tools for neuroscientific problems. She builds and tests computational tools that can be used for both individual and group studies and investigate, through the combination of image information from multipl...

Randy Gollub

Randy Gollub, MD, PhD, is Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry with a secondary appointment in Radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital, where she serves as the Associate Director of Translational Research in the Neuroimaging Research Program. ...

Hui Wang

Dr. Hui Wang's research interests include developing innovative optical techniques and combining with MRI to study the structural-functional relationship of the brain. Particularly, a key question to answer is how the brain is connected to form the substrates of complex functions and what goes wr...

Judith Schaechter

Dr. Judith Schaechter's research aims to advance our understanding of the neural mechanisms underlying recovery after stroke, and to use this information to develop more accurate prognostic biomarkers of recovery and improved therapeutic interventions that promote stroke recovery. Education PhD...

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 ...

Kestas Kveraga

Dr. Kveraga is a cognitive neuroscientist who studies the neural mechanisms of threat perception from naturalistic stimuli, with strong interests in visual pathway function and autism. He is also interested in neural aesthetics and how brain activity can be employed to predict and shape architect...

Dara Manoach

Dr. Manoach is a clinically licensed neuropsychologist and an experimental psychologist by training. She has dedicated her career to understanding the neural basis and nature of fundamental cognitive deficits in neuropsychiatric disorders, particularly schizophrenia and autism. Although sleep pla...

Hesheng Liu

Dr. Liu is an Associate Professor of Radiology at Harvard Medical School. His research focuses on developing novel neuroimaging and computational tools to reveal brain functional architecture in individual subjects. A major goal of his work is to localize functional networks in individual subject...

Eva-Maria Ratai

Dr. Eva-Maria Ratai has been Director of Clinical Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) since 2003. After completing her doctoral thesis in physical chemistry at the University of Münster in Germany in 2000, and her first post-doctoral position in the Department ...
