Research themes 


Dr. Chase Figley completed a BSc honours degree in chemistry (University of Saskatchewan) and PhD in neuroscience (Queen’s University) before undertaking 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). However, his team is also interested in exploring relationships between brain structure and brain function, and has been actively developing a number of advanced image processing methods to support these efforts.
