Dynamic Imaging of Cognition and Neuromodulation Laboratory
Under the direction of
Tony Wilson, Ph.D., the Dynamic Imaging of Cognition and Neuromodulation (DICoN) Laboratory utilizes advanced functional and structural neuroimaging to understand how neural activity in large-scale human brain networks gives rise to normal and aberrant cognitive processes. Specifically, the team uses magnetoencephalography (MEG) to measure the dynamics of brain function in real time, and combines high-resolution structural MRI with computational neuroanatomical techniques to quantify the thickness of cortical gray matter in healthy children and adults, as well as those with neurological and/or psychiatric disorders.
Beyond MEG and structural MRI, the team also uses functional MRI, diffusion-weighted imaging, and noninvasive brain stimulation methods to address emerging questions in basic and translational neuroscience.
