Keilholz Mind Lab

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

The Keilholz Mind 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.

The MIND lab is excited to welcome visiting student Lenka Dvorakova!

[Mar 1st, 2022] Lenka is currently getting her Ph.D. in Molecular Medicine from the University of Eastern Finland in Kuopio, Finland. She will be staying with us for a month to learn about dynamic analyses to apply to her fMRI study of traumatic brain injury in rats.
