Welcome to LOFT – Laboratory of Functional MRI Technology
Mark and Mary Stevens Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute, University of Southern California (USC)

Mission Statement:
At LOFT, we focus on the development of innovative and noninvasive MRI technologies for assessing the structure, function, and connectivity of a live human brain. We strive to develop MRI methods with (sub)millimeter spatial resolution and millisecond temporal resolution, so that human brain activity can be observed dynamically in 4D space. Through close collaboration with clinicians, neuroscientists and data scientists, we actively translate these novel MRI technologies for mapping the human brain in health and disease.
