Ken Kwong and the Introduction of Noninvasive fMRI

In the early months of 1992 the neuroscience community was flush with excitement. Jack Belliveau, a graduate student with the MGH-NMR Center (now the MGH Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging), had recently published in Science his pioneering work with functional MRI, and the possibilities of th...

Capital Contributions

Ever since the Martinos family’s first capital gift to create the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in 1999, the Center has benefited from the generosity of its supporters. Capital gifts, generally to the physical center or endowment, differ from annual support. Instead, capi...

Early Screening of ASD With a New Eye-tracking Paradigm

Studies have shown that early diagnosis and intervention significantly impact the prognosis of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD): the earlier the detection and diagnosis, the better the prognosis and functional status later in life. Currently, the average age of diagnosis is approxi...
