Gabriele Lohmann arbeitet an Algorithmen, die im Bereich moderner bildgebender Verfahren bessere klinische Diagnosen ermöglichen können. Im Film gibt die Gruppenleiterin Einblicke in ihre Forschung.
The mathematician and computer scientist heads a research group in the High Field Magnetic Resonance department at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. Previously, she worked at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig and at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Oberpfaffenhofen. Here she developed early computer-based methods that evaluated the nature of forest areas in satellite images.
LIPSIA is a software for processing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. It was developed over the course of several years at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig in C/C++ on Linux PCs.
LIPSIA offers extremely fast implementations. A standard analysis sequence from raw data to a statistical parametric map generally takes less than 10 minutes per subject.
