Research Summary
Our work is focused on the development and optimization of MR data acquisition, image reconstruction and processing. We develop MR pulse sequences for functional MRI (fMRI) with high-resolution and reduced susceptibility artifacts to enable the study of inferior brain areas and investigation of the cortical structure. Novel anatomical sequences allow for the simultaneous measurement of multiple tissue parameters, inc. T1 and magnetization transfer. An optimized image reconstruction minimizes artifacts, increases the functional sensitivity and robustness towards false positives. Developments in data processing encompass image distortion correction, physiological noise correction, and real-time fMRI. We also combine different neuroimaging methods such as EEG+fMRI and TMS+fMRI. All developments aim at improving the current imaging methods to open up new fields of neuroimaging research.
