Abstract: Recent advances in brain imaging can offer unique insigths into the sturucture and function of the human brain, and can also offer new forms of human computer interface. However, full exploitation of these techniques will require new developments in computer visualization (e.g. high dimensional data) and computational processing (as these techniques generate massive and complicated datasets). This talk showcases the new facilities at the GSU/GT Center for Advanced Brain Imaging. The talk will describe some of the GVU-related research that has been initiated at the center and provide insights into possible future research directions. Specific applications that will be described include understanding the consequences of brain injury, developing enhanced human computer interfaces and accelerating image processing.

Bio: Dr. Rorden is the director of the new GSU/GT Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (www.cabiatl.com).  The CABI employs state-of-the-art methods, functional magnetic resonance imaging, brain stimulation, scalp electrical recording and sophisticated behavioral measures to understand brain function. Dr. Rorden received a B.A. degree from the University of California, San Diego. In 1996, he graduated with his Ph.D. from Cambridge University in Experimental Psychology. He completed post-doctoral work with the British Medical Research Council in Cambridge, as well as both Birkbeck College and University College London. From 2000-2005 he worked as a lecturer and reader at the University of Nottingham, and from 2005-2009 worked at the University of South Carolina's Department of Communication Sciences. Dr. Rorden has published more than 80 peer-reviewed journal articles and has held four grants from the National Institutes of Health. He is principal investigator for two NIH grants are on 'Dissociating Components of the Attentional Network in Neglect' and 'A Unified Neuroanatomical Model of Speech Production and Perception'. A spin off of his research is a popular set of open source software tools available at www.mricro.com. His research interests include perception and language.
