Dr. Peter Bandettini spends a lot of time peering into people's heads. Not because he is clairvoyant, but because he is a biophysicist. Using functional MRI (fMRI), a revolutionary neuroimaging technique he helped pioneer in the '90s, Dr. Bandettini delves into the mysteries of the human brain. He is working to advance fMRI technology to parse out more information about the neural connections that are constantly and spontaneously active even when we think our minds are blank.
Dr. Bandettini is a principal investigator at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and the director of the Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Core Facility. Learn more about his work at https://irp.nih.gov/pi/peter-bandettini
