Home < NAC-Group

The NAC group is a group of scientists at BWH in Boston who are doing research in neuroimaging and neuroimage analysis. This group is open to all interested participants.

The purpose of this group is to advance our individual research agendas by

  • exchanging know-how about image acquisition and image analysis tools and capabilities
  • coordinating our efforts to improve infrastructure at the institution
