Amy Kuceyeski is the PI of the Computational Connectomics (CoCo) Lab at WCM. Her lab focuses on using quantitative methods, including machine learning, applied to MRI-based measures of brain connectivity networks to understand the mysteries of the human brain. One major interest of our lab is in uncovering connectome-based mechanisms of impairment and recovery after neurological injury or disease, including traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis and stroke. If we can understand brain-behavior relationships, we may be able to develop accurate diagnostics, prognostics and individualized therapeutics that can boost recovery after neurological disease or injury.
