Principal Investigator

Jorge Jovicich, M.Sc., Ph.D

With a background in physics my interest is in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisition and analysis methods. In particular, I am interested in pushing the limits of the possible quantitative information that can be extracted from human brains using MRI. Topics of interest include: geometric accuracy, functional specificity, spatial/temporal resolution, reliability, information in temporal signal dynamics.

Full Professor of Psychology (11-E1), PhD Physics, M.Sc. Medical Imaging
