2005 Robert Cherry Teaching Award Finalist Lecture: A Simple View of MRI and Its Rich View of Us – Robert Brown

Date: Thu. October 6th, 2005, 4:15 pm-5:15 pm
Location: Rockefeller 301

With a┬áreported 60 million scans made each year and the frequent news articles on what we are learning about our brain and how we think, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a major clinical and research phenomenon. We hope to discuss 1) the basic role of nuclei in generating pictures, 2) how to win and lose a Nobel Prize, 3) why MRI now is so important in the neuroscience world, 4) why we avoid the word “nuclear,” 5) why it would be marvelous if we could image you inside a very cold refrigerator, 6) a new lie detector and why someday we won’t need to give any more classroom exams.

While this lecture is addressed to a general audience, there will be an effort to insert snippets of advanced and new technical material.
