Yanmei is a computational neuroscientist, her research focuses on functional brain imaging, specifically functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and functional magnetic resonance elastography (fMRE), for presurgical mapping of critical brain areas for surgery planning and guidance. She has been at the forefront of developing resting-state and movie-watching fMRI paradigms for presurgical language mapping in neurosurgical patients, particularly those with neurologic deficits that prevent them from performing regular task-based fMRI. In addition, Yanmei is interested in studying brain network connectivity to gain insight into pathophysiology and develop imaging biomarkers for neurologic diseases, such as multiple sclerosis.
