Research summary

The main aim of my research is concerned with the role that white matter connectivity has on cognition. More specifically focusing on the extent that quantitative diffusion matrices correlate with performance of various behavioural tasks, with the aim of finding any spatial associations or disassociations in the brain. I am also investigating whether there is an underlying link between connectivity and intelligence. The information about brain structure in obtained non-invasively using magnetic resonance imaging techniques. The research is conducted at CUBRIC.
