“A Probabilistic Reference system for the Human Brain”
In this new proposal we add to our existing collection of human brain attributes the important features of white matter tracts, cerebral vasculature and chemoarchitecture, all collected both microscopically in post mortem specimens as well as in vivo using tomographic techniques.

The goal of this project is to develop a better understanding of central nervous system characteristics of persons at risk for alcoholism.

VA Merit Fox (PI)
“Mechanisms of Action of TMS-Induced Performance Enhancement”
The overall goal of this project is 1) to determine the mechanisms of action of short-term (single stimulation session) TMS-induced performance enhancement. 2) To determine the mechanisms of action of long-term (multiple stimulation sessions) TMS-induced performance enhancement.
