Noll Lab

Research Interests

Prof. Noll’s group develops magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology for mapping the functional organization of 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 the Functional MRI Laboratory, this group collaborates with a broad range of neuroscientists to develop an understanding of the organization and functioning of the normal and diseased brain and to apply 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).
