Professor of Neurology
Laboratory of Neuro Imaging
Dr. Toga is interested in the development of new algorithms and the computer science aspects important to neuroimaging. New visualization techniques and statistical measurement are employed in the study of morphometric variability in humans, subhuman primates and rodents.
His laboratory (Laboratory of Neuro Imaging) has been working on the creation of three dimensional digital neuroanatomic and functional neuroanatomic atlases for stereotactic localization and multisubject comparison. Specific programs include the development of local deformation techniques to equate brain data sets from different modalities and different subjects and the development of electronic data bases for the archival, interaction and distribution of brain data.
