Distinguished University Professor of Psychology Vince Calhoun has been named director of the Center for Advanced Brain Imaging (CABI), a joint venture between Georgia State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
CABI opened in 2009 to provide academic researchers with access to functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) facilities to conduct studies on topics ranging from autism and learning disabilities to brain signals and brain-computer interfaces. The center contains advanced neuroimaging facilities that allow scientists to observe detailed functional and structural pathways in the brain. CABI includes facilities for in-scanner electroencephalography, transcranial magnetic stimulation and transcranial Doppler sonography, as well as eye-tracking and other psychophysiological techniques.
Calhoun, a Georgia Research Alliance (GRA) Eminent Scholar in Neuroscience and Neuroinfomatics, also holds appointments in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech and in neurology and psychiatry at Emory University School of Medicine. He is the founding director of the Center for Translational Research in Neuroimaging and Data Science (TReNDS), a tri-institutional effort supported by Georgia State, Georgia Tech and Emory to increase cooperation among Atlanta brain imaging researchers. Calhoun’s research is focused on developing new ways to analyze and use complex brain imaging data by drawing on advanced machine-learning approaches.
