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.
