I am Özgün Özalay, neuroscience PhD student studying at Graduate School of Health Sciences, Ege University, Izmir, Turkey and Neuroimaging Researcher at SoCAT Lab, Ege University Hospital, Izmir, Turkey.

My research includes but not limited to neuroimaging techniques, connectivity and network analysis. I am interested in the interaction of different brain regions both in cognitive processes and pathologic conditions.


These are the projects that i'm involved and currently working on...

Multimodal Connectivity Analysis

Using different MRI modalities (fMRI, DW-MRI, sMRI) i am trying to improve the accuracy of connectivity analyses especially for the frontal lobe.

Connectivity Analysis for Creativity

I am trying to investigate creative task performance and network utilization of brain regions while performing an fMRI analogy task

Hippocampus Segmentation

I am working on auto-segmentation protocols to achieve better segmentation results for both hippocampus and its subfields.
