The Neuroimage Analysis Center (NAC) develops image processing and analysis techniques for basic and clinical neurosciences. The NAC research approach emphasizes both specific core technologies and collaborative application projects. The activities of the NAC are centered at the Harvard Medical School and the Surgical Planning Laboratory at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, with collaborators throughout the United States and the rest of the world. The Neuroimage Analysis Center (NAC) uses advanced computational methods to investigate and solve algorithmic image computing problems in basic and applied neuroscience as well as to design tools for subject-specific image analysis. Its mission is to advance the role of image analysis in healthcare. Advanced imaging techniques provide non-invasive views into the structure, organization, and function of the living brain as it grows, ages, becomes diseased, is treated, and recovers.
