Dr Marta Morgado Correia
Senior Research Associate
Dr Marta Morgado Correia is pleased to consider applications from prospective PhD students.
My research focuses on the use of quantitative MRI methods to understand the brain in health and pathology. I have a particular interested in diffusion MRI, an imaging modality which has been shown to provide useful information about the microstructural architecture of the brain. I have used this technique to study a number of brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury, as well as healthy ageing. I am also interested in developing methods for high resolution fMRI acquisition, in particular methods for motion correction.
Alongside my research work I run the MRI facility at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit.
