Brain Research using Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The Center for Morphometric Analysis (CMA) is dedicated to the development and application of morphometric methods to biomedical imaging data, primarily high-resolution MRI. Using automated and semi-automated software written in our lab, MRI brain images are segmented into anatomical regions of interest. From this, we study the volume, shape, and location of these regions and combine this with other types of information (behavioral studies, functional-MRI scans, etc.) to analyze both the structure and function of the human brain.

Here's a description of the history, funding, and goals of the CMA written by our Director Verne S. Caviness, Jr.

We currently have projects involving:
