Zeke Kaufman recently traveled to Mali to study the djembe: a large goblet-shaped hand drum traditionally associated with the cultures of West Africa. He describes the trip as “a truly life-changing experience.”
Simultaneous MR-PET and other research coming out of the Martinos Center was highlighted at the 2015 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in December, including in a talk by Center Director Bruce Rosen.
Among other applications, the findings could help in preventing Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Postdoctoral fellows are in many ways the backbone of the MGH Martinos Center. We checked in with one of our own—Dan-Mikael Ellingsen—to learn more about his work.
In a new study, Martinos Center investigators shed light on why we spend so much time lost in thought.
This week David Boas will receive the Britton Chance Biomedical Optics Award. In a wide-ranging conversation he talks about meeting Chance more than two decades ago, about the experiments that proved instrumental in the development of biomedical optics, and about why he was slightly anxious about getting on a boat with the illustrious researcher.
Researchers at the MGH Martinos Center and the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, are, for the first time, applying techniques developed by the Human Connectome Project to a specific disease population.
The Martinos Center’s Danhong Wang and Hesheng Liu and colleagues have reported a technique that could usher in a new era of clinical fMRI by providing a unique, personalized map of the different functional areas of an individual’s brain.
Drawing from a unique imaging data collection, researchers have gained new insight into the neurodegenerative disorders.
