Dr. Figley completed a BSc Honors degree in Chemistry (University of Saskatchewan; Saskatoon, SK) and PhD in Neuroscience (Queen’s University; Kingston, ON) before completing a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Laboratory of Working Memory and Cognition (Johns Hopkins University; Baltimore, MD). His research is primarily focused on the development and application of advanced neuroimaging methods – such as diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), myelin water imaging (MWI) and voxel-based morphometry (VBM) – to investigate structural and functional brain changes associated with various disorders (e.g., obesity and Multiple Sclerosis).
