Duke - University of North Carolina: Brain Imaging and Analysis Center

A component of the campus-wide neuroimaging initiative, BIAC brings together scientists from throughout Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to find interdisciplinary solutions to fundamental research questions about the human brain. Two key themes are closely weaved to achieve this goal. The first is to improve research techniques in neuroimaging, through improvements in MR pulse sequence design, applications to high-field fMRI, experimental control, and understanding of brain hemodynamics. Second, BIAC researchers investigate the functional properties of the human brain by applying these state-of-the-art research techniques into basic and translational neuroscience studies. BIAC researchers investigate neural circuits and processes (e.g., memory, emotion, attention) in healthy and diseased brains (e.g., Alzheimer's, Autism, Schizophrenia). To reach their research goals, BIAC combines world-class technical facilities, including MRI and electrophysiological research labs, with outstanding faculty drawn from many departments. BIAC faculty and staff are deeply committed to education and training activities. Formal undergraduate and graduate courses in functional neuroimaging are offered in BIAC, complemented by many workshops, in-services, and forum discussions on specific topics involving all faculty members, post-doctoral fellows and technical staff. Currently, graduate students from Biomedical Engineering, Neurobiology, and Psychology and Neuroscience are in residence at BIAC conducting dissertation research under the guidance of the core faculty members. BIAC is also collaborating with CCN, PN, Neurobiology, and Philosophy in a new Ph.D. program in Interdisciplinary Cognitive Neuroscience. In addition, many post-doctoral students supported by faculty research or training grants are conducting mentored research projects at BIAC. Recent college graduates may apply for a post-baccalaureate fellowship in functional neuroimaging. Our research is organized in three groups: * Imaging and Analysis Methodology * Translational Neuroimaging * Cognitive Neuroimaging
