Visual 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.

The 5 aims of the Visual Brain Core

Information For Visual Brain Core

Visual Brain Core Personnel and Office Hours

  • Ravi Tripathi, MS: Computer Systems Specialist. Consultation on high performance computing and algorithm issues.
    • Office Hours:
    • Monday, 10:00 am -2:00 pm, Civitan International Research Center, Second floor lobby or room 235C.
    • Thursday, 9:00 am-12:00 pm, Civitan International Research Center, Room 235C.

Visual Brain Core Seminar Series and Neuroimaging Journal Club

Visual Brain Core seminar series includes high level speakers usually from outside UAB. Every third Friday at noon in CIRC 120. We will discuss new ideas and techniques in brain imaging.

The Neuroimaging journal club is for UAB and Auburn researchers to share their work, or journal articles of their interest with our neuroimaging community. List of speakers in Visual Brain Core Seminar Series

For Use in Grant Proposals:

The Visual Brain Core must be eventually supported by users. For this reason, we ask that you include use of the Visual Brain Core resources in the budget of your upcoming grants. Quotations from previous proposals are provided here: Grant Proposal Language.
