applied & theoretical

The group of Neuroanatomy of the Unit of Human Genetics and Cognitive Functions is interested in the development and evolution of brain anatomy. Our main tools are mathematical modelling, magnetic resonance imaging and human genetics. We develop computational neuroanatomy methods base on our theoretical models which we use to analyse the normal diversity of human brain anatomy, as well as to look for differences associated with neurodevelopmental pathologies. We are particularly interested in Autism Spectrum Disorders. The group of Neuroanatomy is lead by Roberto Toro.

These are slide shows of different presentations of our research.
