Monroe Turner, PhD
UT Dallas Center for BrainHealth

In terms of as-yet-unsolved mysteries, the brain has no rival within the human body. Neuroimaging techniques like functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) provide a non-invasive and real-time window for peering into the workings of this fascinating two pounds of tissue. In this talk, Monroe Turner, PhD, explores what fMRI reveals about brain health, exploring the use of the blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) signal to map blood oxygen levels within the brain, as well as future opportunities to predict brain health trajectories for both healthy individuals and those with brain disease.

The host for this event will be Dan Krawczyk, PhD

The fall 2023 season will be hybrid. Register free of charge for the season and join us for as many talks as you are able.
