We went to the Research and Creativity Symposium all day and listened to the graduate research projects. I really enjoyed most of them especially Scott Riddle's project on Diffusion Tensor Tractography. DTI helps doctors who are performing surgery on the head to help make sure that the doctor doesn't disrupt the neurons that would disrupt the sense of motion etc. He made his presentation very interesting by engaging the audience and allowing for questions as the presentation went on to keep the discussion understandable. After hearing his presentation I would like to learn more about MRI and DTI data.
