Powerful imaging methods like MRI and MEG provide neuroscientists with a detailed view of the human brain – including the spatial and temporal changes that occur as we interact with the world. Our researchers are using these tools to study how the brain develops from infancy, which regions underlie different aspects of our mental lives, and whether imaging can be used to predict the onset of disease.
