ELSC Members

Human Brain Biophysics lab
The Belgian Friends Laboratory for the study of Neurodegenerative Diseases

Research in the lab is focused on in-vivo mapping of human brain structures. We are investigating the relationship between structure, function. Our main research tool is in in-vivo quantitative magnetic resonance imaging – qMRI. We are developing tools to biophysically explain the brain’s MRI signals at different levels and resolutions: from molecular local sources through the cellular organization to the mapping of networks across the entire brain. Using these tools, we are studying brain normal development and aging, as well as characterizing neurological disorders. Our research group’s ultimate goal is to develop an understanding of how individual-specific biological structures influence human cognition, under both normal and pathological conditions.

Our Lab is now recruiting students and postdocs interested in human brain imaging. Background in MR, biophysics, computer-science, engineering or other related fields can be advantageous.

We are also looking for post-docs or researchers (full/part time) with background in MR-physics.

Please send CV, a short research interests statement, and names of potential references to: aviv.mezer@elsc.huji.ac.il
