Grant award: Assessing neonatal brain function with fMRI

The laboratory has been awarded “Collaborative Research Health Project” funding from NSERC and CIHR. The project will develop assessments of neonatal brain injury using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). There are two main parts to this: adapting neuroimaging methods from adults and children to neonates; and developing stimulation protocols to measure key mental functions that are effective at this age.

The project runs for three years, and will employ three full-time staff, three graduate students, and a number of summer students. These posts will be advertised soon on this site. You can read more about our neonatal work on the Research – Brain & Mind page, and see links to our collaborators on the Collaborators page.
