MRFIL focuses on the development of acquisition and image reconstruction strategies, using MRI, to accurately and quantitatively image physiology with primary applications in functional brain imaging, structural brain imaging, and neuromuscular dynamics during normal speech and swallowing. We are also interested in biomarkers associated with declines in cognitive and motor performance that come with healthy aging.
MRI access is given through the Biomedical Imaging Center of the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Chamapaign. Several MRI scanners are also used at Carle Clinic Association, Urbana,IL.
