The imaging will include fMRI, structural MRI, DTI, and resting state. The primary responsibility of the post-doc will be to lead the team on the imaging component, including task design, data acquisition, and analyses. A commitment for the full two years of the grant is required.
The team includes Fergus Craik, Cheryl Grady, and Morris Freedman as well as several research assistants. The research will be conducted at York University in Toronto, Canada.
