The Chang Lab focuses on increasing understanding of the human brain by advancing functional neuroimaging methodology. They develop approaches for extracting information about brain activity in health and disease by combining neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG) and computational signal analysis techniques. Their research is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, bridging fields such as engineering, computer science, neuroscience, psychology, and medicine.

They are at ​Vanderbilt University in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. They are also affiliated with the  Department of Biomedical Engineering , the Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science (VUIIS), the Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VISE), and the Vanderbilt Brain Institute (VBI).

The MASI research laboratory concentrates on analyzing large-scale cross-sectional and longitudinal neuroimaging data. Specifically, we are interested in population characterization with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), multi-parametric studies (DTI, sMRI, qMRI), and shape modeling.

Zeidan Lab

The central objective of  research from the Brain Mechanisms of Pain & Health Lab is to identify the specific mechanisms supporting the cognitive regulation of pain and health.  We also are primarily focused on assessing the processes supporting cost-effective, non-pharmacological approaches to pain relief such as mindfulness meditation.
