Visual Brain Core

Visual Brain Core

Directory Category: Core

Our mission is to help produce high quality, cutting edge research examining the visual brain. To achieve this, we will help investigators overcome some common barriers to performing high quality vision research, and provide forums to discuss new ideas and research techniques.

Aims of the core:

  1. The core will facilitate interactions among investigators through a regularly scheduled “methods” workshop, centered around the development and implementation of state-of-the-art methods for analysis of brain data.
  2. Help set up project workflows to efficiently process data. To do this, the core will help labs develop a coherent framework for computing resources, storage, and backup for the large datasets required by neuroimaging studies and help provide computer systems support.
  3. Investigators will have access to an imaging researcher for assistance developing and learning complex data analysis tools used in the analysis of high dimensional, large-scale vision and brain datasets, and designing appropriate analysis protocols. This researcher will not perform your data analysis, but will consult with you about how to implement the analysis and experiment.
  4. Visual Brain Core will purchase equipment to generate visual displays allowing defined and controlled stimulus characteristics for studies for use in functional MRI experiments.
