M.Sc. Student, Medical Biophysics, Western University
Profile & Research Interests
Kathryn Manning is a M.Sc. student with Dr. Menon where she is working on multiple applications of functional magnetic resonance imaging. She is currently developing optimal techniques for imaging the anesthetized primary visual cortex of non-human primates viewing a visual stimulus in the 7T MRI system. Once this is optimized, she hopes to compare the corresponding electrophysiological signals directly with the BOLD signals during both resting and active states in order to further ensure the neural basis of this imaging technique. She is also involved in a study exploring the neurological effects of constraint-induced movement therapy as a treatment for hemiparetic cerebral palsy on the 3T MRI.
