Abstract: Diffusion MRI (dMRI) is a fast-growing field inneuroimaging due to its rich physics and broadapplication. On one hand, dMRI is a non-invasive tool to probe white matter microstructure. In the first part of this talk, I will present some work we have done using diffusion tensor imaging and neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI) in examining microstructure changes in different brain disorders as well as morphological changes from learning. In the later part of the talk, I will show that microstructure models can help to predict dMRI signals and we used that to extrapolate low b-value signals to higher bvalues.
