Marcus E. Raichle, a neurologist, is a Professor of Radiology, Neurology, Neurobiology and Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St Louis. He and his colleagues have made outstanding contributions to the study of human brain function through the development and use of positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).  Their landmark study (Nature, 1988) described the first integrated strategy for the design, execution and interpretation of functional brain images. Dr. Raichle will be hosted by the Graduate Student Committee of the Neurobiology Curriculum. 

The title of his seminar will be:

"The Restless Brain"
