We use MRI and EEG to investigate how the human brain changes in early development.

Brains

Preterm infants can be born as early as 24 weeks' gestation, spending the first few months of their lives receiving neonatal care. During this time the human brain changes rapidly, with marked changes in structure and function. For example, this can be visually observed from the surface of the brain which transitions from a smooth to a highly convoluted structure. We use EEG and MRI to investigate how responses to stimuli change across the preterm period, and how being born prematurely can affect brain development.
