Neva Corrigan is a research scientist in Dr. Patricia Kuhl’s laboratory. Neva earned a BS from Cornell University, and a MS and PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California at Davis, with a focus on medical imaging. Her PhD studies focused on MRI data acquisition and analysis, with a dissertation on the development of a digital filtering algorithm for the removal of physiological noise from fMRI images.
Over the past 14 years, she has utilized her extensive signal and image processing expertise in the analysis and interpretation of MRI and electrophysiological data with investigators at the UW in the Departments of Radiology and Neurological Surgery, as well as the UW Autism Center. Neva has worked extensively with Dr. Stephen Dager in the Department of Radiology, using innovative 2D and 3D magnetic resonance spectroscopic (MRS) imaging techniques to study brain chemical alterations associated with autism spectrum disorder in infants and children. Her interests in Dr. Kuhl’s lab include co-registration of electrophysiological and MRI/MRS data, as well as innovative techniques for quantitative assessment of brain structural changes associated with early childhood development.
