MRI Meets Neuromodulation
Optimizing neuromodulation therapies with MRI brain images
Committed to Diversity
Fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion

Morrison Lab at UCSF Radiology

We are dedicated to advancing neuromodulation1 therapies for patients with neuropsychiatric conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and obsessive-compulsive disorder. We extract quantitative information from brain MRI2 images to study and predict patients’ neural and clinical responses to brain stimulation. Ultimately, our goal is to develop MRI-based decision-support tools for clinicians who administer neuromodulation therapies. 

1 Neuromodulation – method of delivering electrical current to targeted brain areas to restore function 
2 MRI – a noninvasive technique that uses a magnet and radio waves to take pictures of internal organs without radiation
