Brain Imaging

Research in the Brain Imaging Core Technology Platform utilizes magnetoencephalography (MEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to study the brain as it responds to a variety of stimuli. Currently, this CTP is being used to study the way natural language is processed by the brain.

In collaboration with UAE University, researchers with this CTP work to answer questions about how the brain mediates the most critical aspects of our communication system, and which properties of the mind/brain facilitate the seemingly effortless processing of language, ranging from the analysis of speech sounds to the construction of meaning.
