Q&A with Lia Hocke, Yunjie Tong, and Blaise Frederick

 

BY MARK CHIEW

Two days after American Thanksgiving, we had the opportunity to speak with Lia Hocke, Yunjie Tong and Blaise Frederick about their recent MRM paper “Comparison of peripheral near-infrared spectroscopy low-frequency oscillations to other denoising methods in resting state functional MRI with ultrahigh temporal resolution”. Working out of the McLean Hospital, part of Harvard Medical School, they shared their perspective on the mutual information contained in peripheral NIRS (near infrared spectroscopy) and fMRI signals. They also used the word “photoplethysmograph” correctly in a sentence, and left us with a delightful shout-out to statistical rigor.

Q&A with Klaus Scheffler and Philipp Ehses

BY MARK CHIEW

On the 24th of June, we sat down with Klaus Scheffler and Philipp Ehses to ask them a few questions about their recent MRM paper, “High-Resolution Mapping of Neuronal Activation with Balanced SSFP at 9.4 Tesla”. They are based out of the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tübingen (where Klaus directs the High Field Magnetic Resonance Center), which houses one of the few 9.4 T human MRI systems in the world. We were fortunate enough to have a really fun discussion about their work on SSFP fMRI, the importance of eating breakfast (at ISMRM), and whether or not EPI has passed its “best-before” date…
