Project summary

Peter is developing MRI methods in collaboration with Professor Peter Jezzard and Dr Karla Miller. Peter's goal is to measure white matter bundles with high resolution, such that they can be distinguished in close proximity to one another (eg in the spinal cord), or visualised at their interface with grey matter. He will subsequently use this to study structural connections in the brain and spine in health, chronic pain and motor neurone disease.
