The Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, usually referred to simply as the Martinos Center, is one of the world’s premier imaging centers, and is the result of a partnership between Harvard, MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital.
The Society for Neuroscience recently named Mass General researcher Laura Lewis, PhD, a recipient of the Peter and Patricia Gruber International Research Award. Supported by The Gruber Foundation, the award recognizes young neuroscientists for outstanding research and educational pursuit in an international setting and includes $25,000 for each recipient. We asked Dr. Lewis, an investigator […]
In the early years of alcoholism research, most studies were conducted using samples that involved men only, because women were thought to add complexity to research studies. That’s why researchers at the Martinos Center decided to take a closer look at the different ways that men and women with alcohol use disorder (AUD) respond to emotional cues.
Illuminating Hidden Trauma: The Prevalence of Traumatic Brain Injury in Cases of Intimate Partner Violence
Eve Valera, PhD, uses neuroimaging to illuminate the hidden trauma of TBI while studying the impact of TBI on female IPV survivors.
Researchers from the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital has developed a new testing protocol to screen infants, toddlers and young children for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using eye tracking software. The tool could increase early detection rates and reduce the time and cost of current screening techniques.
Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital are using advanced brain imaging techniques to learn more about how brain disorders function at a molecular and genetic level.
The Mass General Research Institute is made up of numerous centers, labs and researchers within the Massachusetts General Hospital. We are incredibly grateful to be a part of such a large community of innovative scientists. One of our centers, the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, recently highlighted several of their researchers to support women in […]
Have you ever felt like you are the least qualified person in the room who somehow managed to fool everyone into thinking you belong there? If so, you’re not alone, and this feeling is actually a well-known psychological phenomenon called imposter syndrome.
A team of researchers at Mass General, in collaboration with a team form the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, recently identified a pattern of brain inflammation in the brains of fibromyalgia patients that could be the key to diagnosing this elusive disorder.
