Sepulcre Lab

About the lab

PI: Jorge Sepulcre

The Sepulcre lab focuses on brain imaging studies aiming at the understanding of large-scale brain networks implicated in human cognition and neurodegenerative disorders. We also devote a substantial part of our work developing cutting-edge network methodologies for different brain imaging modalities such as functional connectivity MRI and PET imaging.

Research

Our specific research interest aligns with the following topics:

  • Systems Neuroscience
  • Brain Functional Streams
  • Brain Hierarchical Organization
  • Multimodal Sensory Integration
  • Language Neuroarchitecture
  • Neurodegenerative Disorders
