Characterising and compensating for partial volume effects in motion-compensated brain imaging of small animals

Partial volume effects resulting from the limited spatial resolution of positron emission tomography (PET) remain a key limitation to accurate quantification of PET image data. This more...

Surface estimation of freely moving animals to enable quantitative neuroimaging

Accurate estimation of the highly non-rigid surface of freely moving animals is necessary to properly quantify data from brain imaging studies in which the animals are allowed to mo more...

A purpose-built brain imaging scanner for awake, freely moving animals

We recently developed a technology that enables the brain of a small animal to be imaged while the animal is free to move. This opens up a new class of experiments aimed at relating more...
