Professor Amir Shmuel

McGill University, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Biomedical Engineering

Research interests: Quantitative analysis of the neurophysiological basis underlying functional brain imaging signals, mechanisms and limits of high-resolution functional brain imaging using hemodynamic signals - [website]

Dr. Shmuel is the director of the Brain Imaging Signals Lab at the MNI, an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Neurology & Neurosurgery, and an Associate Member of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at McGill University. He holds a Canada Research Chair in Neuroscience and Brain Imaging. Dr. Shmuel has made important contributions to the understanding of the mechanisms underlying the blood oxygenation and blood flow signals, and the functional organization of early visual areas in the brain. He has published papers in prestigious journals, and has given numerous invited lectures. His laboratory employs an integrative approach, using combined MRI, optical imaging, neurophysiology and modeling. His research is supported by grants from HFSP, NSERC, CIHR and CFI.
