Prof. Noll’s group develops magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
technology for mapping the functional organization the human brain
(known as functional MRI or fMRI) as well as general MRI technology.
More specifically, the group’s main focus is on the development of
image acquisition, image reconstruction, signal processing, and
hardware approaches to provide high-speed and robust measurement
of function over the entire brain. As part of Functional MRI Laboratory,
this group collaborates with a broad range of neuroscientist to develop
an understanding of the organization and functioning of the normal
and diseased brain and to apply the technological advances to
quantitative imaging of brain function in a variety of neurological and
psychiatric disorders. Recent collaborations include work to use MRI
to guide and monitor focused ultrasound therapy (e.g. histotripsy).
