Matthew Glasser is a 4th year medical student at Washington University in St. Louis, who did his PhD training in Neuroscience with Dr. David Van Essen. He has over a decade of experience in brain imaging research with a focus on brain anatomy and brain imaging methods development, and has authored or co-authored 41 peer-reviewed articles. He is best known for his work on reconstructing the arcuate fasciculus, the main connection between the brain’s language areas, developing novel or improved methods for mapping cortical areas, such as mapping the amount of neuronal insulation, called myelin, of the cortical grey matter based on clinical T1-weighted / T2-weighted MRI images, and for producing a new multi-modal map of the human cerebral cortex. He is pursuing clinical training in Neuroradiology to be a physician-scientist neuroradiologist.
