Clinical neurobiology develop and apply brainmapping techniques for use in diagnostic imaging (e.g., pre-operative functional brain mapping). Cognitive neurobiology projects use brainmapping techniques to study the physical and temporal organization of the neural systems supporting human behavior. Human functional brain mapping using computerized imaging techniques including positron emission tomography, anatomical magnetic resonance imaging, functional magnetic resonance imaging, event-related potentials, magentoencephalography, and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Imaging methodology focus on anatomical and functional normalization of image-data and automated image analyses for functional brain mapping.
