Project Description: We are interested in exploring the developmental effects of preterm hypoxic ischaemic injury on vision in adolescents and young adults with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL). PVL is associated with impaired myelination, cortical development, and thalamic injury, each of which may negatively impact development of the visual system and affect visual abilities. We use a variety of MRI techniques to examine specific aspects of brain structure, function, and white matter connectivity related to visual dysfunctions observed in individuals with PVL. The student will work closely with senior investigators in the lab to assess functional vision using a variety of computer-based software and assist with collecting and analyzing structural and diffusion MRI data. The research covers multiple disciplines and would be ideal for those considering further training in the disciplines of neurology, ophthalmology (specifically neuro-ophthalmology), or pediatrics. Skills Required: A bachelor's degree in psychology, neuroscience, physiology, computer science, or related fields is required. An interest in working with young persons with disabilities would be highly desirable. Previous experience with neuroimaging would be ideal. Strong work ethic, organization, communication skills, and attention to detail are required. The candidate should be self-motivated and able to solve problems independently while also being comfortable working with others. Applicants with a background in programming (e.g. Unix, C, Python, MATLAB), statistical analysis software (e.g. R, SAS, STATA, etc), and/or neuroimaging software (e.g. FreeSurfer, FSL, DSIStudio, etc.) are strongly encouraged to apply. Duration of Project: A minimum of six months commitment is required, however one year is preferable. Project Site: The project takes place at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Please see our lab website for more information.
