NPNL’s REINVENT Brain Computer Interface featured in IEEE Xplore’s Innovation Spotlight

Aug 29, 2017

We’re really excited to be featured in IEEE Xplore​‘s Innovation Spotlight for our work developing REINVENT, a low-cost brain computer interface that provides virtual reality neurofeedback for people after stroke! We’ve been building this for over a year now with a great team of neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists, and clinicians from the USC Chan Division of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy and the Mixed Realities Lab from the​ USC Institute for Creative Technologies​.

ATLAS (Anatomical Tracings of Lesions After Stroke), Release 1.1, is now LIVE!

Aug 28, 2017

ATLAS (Anatomical Tracings of Lesions After Stroke), Release 1.1, is now LIVE!

We are very​ excited to announce that our ATLAS dataset, Release 1.1, is now live! This is a dataset of n=304 post-stroke T1-weighted MRIs and manually segmented lesion masks.

The full dataset is archived with ICPSR here:

A subset of the data that has been standardized and defaced is also archived with the Functional Connectomes Project’s International Neuroimaging Data-Sharing Initiative (FCP INDI) here:

Check out more info in our bioRxiv preprint:

Thanks to all the amazing ATLAS contributors and team members - it’s been a long journey but we are excited to share this big data stroke neuroimaging resource!

Congratulations to David on his scholarship!

Aug 10, 2017

Congratulations to NPNL’s Lily Ito on her abstract acceptance to ASNR (American Society of Neuroradiology), and to Julia and Artemis on their abstract acceptance to Society for Neuroscience(SfN)!

Lily’s abstract is titled, “A Comparison of Automated Lesion Segmentation Approaches for Stroke MRI Data”

Julia and Artemis’ abstract is on “The Anatomical Tracings of Lesions After Stroke (atlas) Dataset - Release 1.1”

Congrats to all three successful members of the lab!
