Uri Nevo's Lab
We search for simple biophysical and mathematical laws that define the behavior of cells, and specifically of neurons. Our primary biophysical goal in our neurophysiological studies is to understand and measure the relation between neuronal activity and mechanical events.
We combine the use of MRI, fluorescent microscopy and theoretical biophysical modeling. Our expertise in biophysical modeling has led us to develop Cell-Studio: a unique platform for agent-based modeling of complex biological systems, primarily the immune system.
In a separate track, we study new methods in NMR and characterize tissue microstructure. Specifically, we develop methods to perform biomedical NMR and MRI applications with an inhomogeneous and low magnetic field.
