Ting Xu, PhD

Ting Xu is a research scientist in the Center for the Developing Brain at the Child Mind Institute. She examines cortical organization and its fundamental characteristics based on resting-state functional MRI data.

In the past, Dr. Xu has investigated the low-frequency oscillations in BOLD (blood oxygen level dependent) signals by using time-frequency analyses. Her scientific interests mainly focus on exploring the functional connectome via various mathematical/statistical methods and applying them to investigate brain changes associated with normal development and those caused by disorders.
