Directed by Blaise Frederick, Ph.D., the Opto-Magnetic Group is an interdisciplinary research group within the Brain Imaging Center at McLean Hospital with a focus on the development of novel multimodal functional neuroimaging methods (primarily integrating near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to explore acute and chronic alterations of cerebral function in psychiatric and substance abuse disorders, peripheral circulatory dysfunction from a variety of causes, and the normal vascular changes associated with aging. The OMG also develops, maintains, and distributes multiple open source software tools for fMRI data analysis, including rapidtide, for characterizing and removing delayed blood flow signals from fMRI data, and PICAchooser, a tool to simplify ICA data denoising
