Neuroimaging and Data Analysis
Todd Parrish, Ph. D. and colleagues analyze all behavioral and neuroimaging data collected at project sites to examine models of language recovery. The Neuroimaging data include structural (anatomic and diffusion), functional (task-based and resting state), and physiologic (perfusion). State-of-the-art data processing machinery is used to automatically analyze the data and add them to the project- wide database. These data are used to address specific questions about how the brain recovers from aphasia and the biomarkers that predict language recovery.
Dr. Parrish is a Professor in the Departments of Radiology and Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern University and he directs the Neuroimaging core at Northwestern University’s research imaging facility. His background is in biomedical engineering and biophysics related to MRI methods. He is an expert and leading authority on MR based neuroimaging methods and analysis.
