BrainLab: Imaging

BrainLab comprises an image processing lab developed as part of the LC Campbell Cognitive Neurology Research Unit at the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Toronto (Canada), under the supervision of Dr. Sandra E. Black.

Our imaging software has been optimized for an aging population, and designed to be used for the longitudinal Sunnybrook Aging and Dementia study, with a particular emphasis on Alzheimer's Disease and subcortical white matter hyperintensities.

Our imaging lab is comprised of experts from a broad range of backgrounds including neuroscience, psychology, radiology, neurology, computer science, and many more.
