The Charvet lab and affiliated researchers are located across the world. Together, we are a very strong team. We are very diverse in  our backgrounds, research experiences and live in different time zones! We are developing new approaches to study neural circuits in the human brain.  Also, please check out Melissa's mission to find out why we are so diverse.

Collaborators in Delaware


Drs. Kahn Hekmatyar and Jianli Sun

We have implemented high angular resolution diffusion MR scans at the University of Delaware thanks to Kahn. As you can see on the right panel, the tractography (top panel) is concordant with tract-tracers in mice (lower panel). This work is funded by a Delaware INBRE. The mission of the INBRE is to enhance the research infrastructure of Delaware. Below is an example of the tractography from diffusion MR scans from mouse brains.

The tract-tracers are from the Allen Brain Institute
