    UMass Amherst Neuroscientists Receive $2.36 Million Grant to Improve Brain Research Tools

    Cognitive neuroscientists Rosie Cowell and David Huber at the University of Massachusetts Amherst recently received a four-year, $2.36 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a new computational tool that will help researchers in interpreting functional magnetic resonance images (fMRI) of the brain and improve accuracy in relating fMRI data to neural responses in the brain.

    1. The computational technique we're developing allows us to break those millions of neurons into pools, so we can narrow the response down and know more about how smaller groups of neurons are behaving. We'll be applying mathematical modeling figure out how different parts of the population are responding.
