Brain Imaging

In collaboration with the University of Washington Integrated Brain Imaging Center (IBIC),  Seattle Children’s Hospital , and SCRI’s Small Animal Tomographic Analysis (SANTA) Facility , CIBR investigators use neuroimaging tools to assess brain structure and function in a number of human neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, as well as in animal models of human disorders.  The most widely used research methods include quantitative assessment of structural MRI scans to ascertain shape and volumetric abnormalities in specific brain regions, functional MRI (fMRI) to explore abnormal brain activation in response to specific stimuli, and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to examine white matter integrity and connectivity
