Available Projects

  • The UK Biobank is a large-scale biomedical database and research resource, containing in-depth neuroimaging, genetic and health information from half a million UK participants.

    Multiple projects are available for students interested to work on large neuroimaging datasets. Methods used in our group include, but are not limited to, diffusion MRI, connectomics, resting-state fMRI, machine learning, structure-function coupling and sympotm-comorbidity mapping using graph theroetical approaches. Our main focus is inspired by the goal to develop a better understanding of brain-based mechanisms and associated risk factors that lead to the development and maintenance of mental disorders and neuropsychiatric consequence of brain injury or other neurological conditions. Students interested in healthy brain strucutre and function are also welcome to apply.
