NACS' Maryland Neuroimaging Center (MNC)

Made possible by a $2 million award from the NSF, the MNC will house a new fMRI scanner and the University's existing MEG, a combination that exists at only a couple of locations in the country. The center opens in Summer 2011.

Position: Assistant Professor
Departments: Kinesiology
Affiliations: School of Public Health
Research Areas: Neuromorphic Engineering and Sensory-Motor Integration, Network Models and Pattern Recognition
Research Levels: Systems Neuroscience, Theory and Computational Modeling
