Brain Image Analysis Unit, Integrative Computational Brain Science Collaboration Division, Center for Brain Science (Unit leader:Dr. Henrik Skibbe)

[Research Field]
As part of the interdisciplinary Brain/MINDS project (https://brainminds.jp/en/), the Brain Image Analysis Unit develops new techniques to analyze multimodal marmoset brain image data, such as high-resolution two-photon microscopy images, DTI, or resting-state functional MRI.
Machine learning techniques such as deep learning are integrated into new algorithms to improve state-of-the-art processing and analysis of brain imaging data.
Emphasis is placed on developing methods for image registration, image stitching, tracking of neurons and axon fiber bundles, detection and segmentation of structures and denoising, enhancement, and visualization of images.
