20 Years of FreeSurfer

It’s a sunny day in Southern California and the developers of FreeSurfer—a suite of software tools for the analysis of neuroimaging data—are preparing for a training session to introduce scientists to the many benefits of the package. To help the scientists find the classroom they have hung “Free...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

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...
