Event Details


The first Neuroimaging Colloquium will focus on diffusion MR imaging — a magnetic resonance imaging technique used to study brain tissue design, especially white tracts, in both normal and diseased states. Throughout the academic year, the Simons Foundation Lectures’ Neuroimaging Colloquia will feature a variety of neuroimaging topics, from magnetic resonance spectrometry to transcranial magnetic stimulation.
