Nico Dosenbach is associate professor of neurology at Washington University School of Medicine. His research as a systems neuroscientist is focused on pushing resting-state functional connectivity MRI (RSFC), functional MRI (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to the level of individual patients. To create and annotate the connectomes of individuals he is working to improve the signal-to-noise, spatial resolution and replicability of RSFC, DTI and fMRI data.
