research focused on multi-modal brain imaging aimed at understanding individual
differences. A major goal of our work is to improve surgical planning for
epilepsy and brain tumor patients. Another goal is to develop imaging
phenotypes that will help us identify genetic underpinnings of some psychiatric
diseases such as schizophrenia.
