Pr Els Fieremans from New-York University will give a talk at NeuroSpin on August 29th.
She's an expert of microstructural models based on diffusion MRI to decode brain cellular organizations.
Diffusion MRI is a very powerful tool to probe tissue microstructure in vivo. In my talk, I will show how information about the microstructure can be gleaned by varying both the diffusion gradient q and diffusion time t. While both q and t are collectively grouped together as the diffusion weighting or b-value, I will explore both avenues here separately to illustrate their different specific sensitivities. Overall q-t diffusion MRI may enable a novel kind of structural contrast at the micrometer scale, and open up exciting possibilities of monitoring subtle structural changes within neuronal tracts in disease, aging, and development.
