This is a unique opportunity to work on one of the largest longitudinal data sets in Huntington’s Disease (HD) in an interdisciplinary research platform. This project involves exploring the relationship between the structure and functions of the human brain using a computational modeling technique. The student involved in this project will work with two types of MRI data obtained through two different methods of magnetic resonance imaging techniques (diffusion tensor imaging and functional magnetic resonance imaging). These data have been obtained from a group of healthy controls and two groups of participants with HD, who are at two different stages of the disease. The main objective of the project is to observe the changes in the structure-function relationship in these participants compared to healthy controls as a function of time. Ideally, this project is suitable for students who have previous knowledge and experience in brain image processing or who are interested to learn and broaden their skills in that area. We are looking for a driven individual who will be competitive in applying for scholarships to carry out this research.
