Yale Medicine Magazine, 2002 - Autumn


R. Todd Constable, Ph.D., associate professor of diagnostic radiology and neurosurgery, was awarded a $1 million, 5-year grant from the NIH to develop and validate functional magnetic resonance imaging methodology for the study of language processing for neurosurgical planning. This work will not only lead to improved techniques for functional mapping but also improve the understanding of the neuronal circuits associated with language processing and characterize the impact of diseases such as epilepsy on cortical reorganization. Constable is the director of Magnetic Resonance Imaging at Yale and co-director, along with Douglas Rothman, Ph.D. ’87, of the Magnetic Resonance Research Center.
