A glimpse to our research

The activity of the Lab. is centered on neuroimaging, medical imaging and computational vison. We investigate brain connectivity from multi-modal data including diffusion MRI, functional MRI, ASL, EEG and high density EEG. This has the twofold challenge of characterizing white matter networks and to assess its integrity in pathological conditions. Besides this central topic, we work on the exploitation of pattern recognition methods for the segmentation of tissues for diagnostic and surgical planning. Then, we are also involved with visual perception, in particular regarding color vision and color naming. Blending cognitive sciences and computer science is the only way to get to a holistic view of the human brain both in healthy and in pathological conditions, which is the ultimate goal of our research
