A focus of this work has been on the development and validation of methods for the acquisition, processing, and analysis of blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data at ultra-high fields. Recently, this work was translated from the human brain to the spinal cord. The current focus of the Brain & Spinal Cord Laboratory is the development of next-generation hardware and software for spinal cord MRI and fMRI at 7 Tesla.
