IBaCS Seed Grant: Modeling auditory perception in the individual brain

The NIDL Lab, along with Chi-Ming Chen (Translational Research and Neural Stimulation Lab) and Ed Large (Music Dynamics Lab) has received an IBaCS seed grant award ┬áto support our efforts to build computational models of auditory processing that will incorporate neurochemistry to generate predictions of individual behavior and electrophysiology! When you hear a sound, some populations of neurons fire in […]

Seed funding for `Genetic and Environmental Bases of Language Processing`

The NIDL Lab has a recieved an IBaCS seed grant to support research into how genetic and environmental factors contribute to the development of reading and language circuits. Parents play a major role in the development of complex traits,such as reading and reading disorder, in their offspring through genetically and environmentally mediated pathways. The human brain has regionally varying sensitivity […]

New tool for MRS voxel placement

The Voxel Positioning System (VPS) is a tool prototyped as a ParaView pipeline for interactively placing bounding boxes on a 3D volume, intended as an aid for planning single voxel magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) experiments. VPS allows you to easily evaluate the feasibility of different voxel geometries based on expected field homogeneity, tissue fractions, and ROI content of a voxel. […]
