Core Description

The Neuroimaging Core provides assistance and guidance to investigators using various MRI paradigms in research studies relevant to developmental disorders. This assistance includes conceptualizing, planning, and implementing stimulus paradigms, MRI pulse sequences, and data analysis schema in order to optimize efficiency and to help investigators use available imaging technology. We also guide users of the Core to seek synergies across different types of imaging data (anatomic, functional, spectroscopic), and, when applicable, to incorporate trans-cranial magnetic stimulation techniques complementary to functional MRI.
