Keilholz Lab

The Keilholz Lab is part of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Emory University and Georgia Tech.

The Keiholz lab (located on the Emory campus) studies functional connectivity mapping, based on correlations in the blood oxygenation dependent (BOLD) MRI signal. The exact relationship between these measures and the electrical signals of the brain is poorly understood, and the lab uses combined MRI and electrophysiological techniques in rodent models to elucidate the neural basis of functional connectivity. They plan to use these tools to build a multi-scale model of the brain capable of providing insight into the origin and relevance of functional networks observed with BOLD.


Dr. Shella Keilholz participated in a panel discussion at 2019 OHBM Annual Meeting at Rome, Italy.

Dr. Shella Keilholz serves as the secretary of OHBM. The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) is an international society focused on promoting the future of the anatomical and functional organization of the human brain using neuroimaging.

Global signal versus large-scale spatiotemporal patterns was the subject of Dr. Keilholz' talk at OHBM 2019.

So many people want to see Xioadi's talk that they're crowded into the hallway outside watching the live stream because the room is full.
