There would be no VBC session on Monday, Nov 12th 2018. If you have any questions, please send an email to Research Computing at


CINL Brain Core is an arm of the Civitan International Neuroimaging Laboratory. The original "Visual Brain Core" was made possible by a generous grant from UAB's HSF/GEF grant program. Given that our resources ended up being used by a broader base of users than just vision researchers, we've dropped the "visual" from our name. Also, we're continuing our work in collaboration with UAB's Civitan International Neuroimaging Lab, and so we're officially the CINL Brain Core now.


CINL Brain Core Mission

Our mission is to help produce high quality, cutting edge research examining the visual brain. To achieve this, we will help investigators overcome some common barriers to performing high quality vision research, and provide forums to discuss new ideas and research techniques.

Information For CINL Brain Core

CINL Brain Core Personnel and Office Hours

    • Office Hours:
    • Monday, 10:00 am - noon, Civitan International Research Center, Second floor outside room 210.
  • Ravi Tripathi, MS: Computer Systems Specialist. Consultation on high performance computing and algorithm issues.
    • Thursday, 10:00 am - noon, Edge of Chaos in Lister Hill Library.
  • Mark Bolding, Ph.D. will discuss MR physics related questions. Ravi Tripathi, MS: Computer Systems Specialist. Consultation on high performance computing and algorithm issues.

CINL Brain Core Seminar Series and Neuroimaging Journal Club

Brain Core seminar series includes high level speakers usually from outside UAB. Every second Friday at noon in CIRC 120. We will discuss new ideas and techniques in brain imaging. During other fridays at noon in CIRC 120, we have Neuroimaging Journal Club. The Neuroimaging journal club is for UAB and Auburn researchers to share their work, or journal articles of their interest with our neuroimaging community. Information about this colloquium is here: CINL page .
