John Mazziotta

John Mazziotta established the
Brain Mapping Center at UCLA, which aims to compile all of the methods available to study human brain structure and function. The resulting composite maps formed from PET, MRI, optical imaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, EEG, post-mortem tissue analysis, and receptor binding assays give an ever-evolving information source about cerebral function and structure.
