Multimodal brain imaging across spatiotemporal scales and contrast mechanisms

Dr. Lake works on the development and application of multimodal neuroimaging methods to advance our collective understanding of brain function. Primarily using rodent models, Lake’s lab implements functional magnetic resonance imaging, wide-field fluorescence optical imaging, and other complementary approaches to uncover how large-scale network-level activity in the brain is linked across spatiotemporal scales and sources of contrast. Through the unique co-implementation of different modalities, her group can observe instances of signal convergence (and divergence), offering a unique window into how the brain works and our ability to probe its functions.




Evelyn Lake holds a bachelor’s degree in Biophysics from the University of Guelph, where she also worked as a research assistant in solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance. She obtained her PhD from the University of Toronto, Department of Medical Biophysics, for her work on multimodal imaging and treatment of chronic ischemic stroke. In 2016, Dr. Lake came to Yale as a postdoctoral research associate working on functional neuroimaging in animal models and open-source human neuroimaging data. Since joining the faculty in 2019, she has grown a research program centered on developing and applying novel multimodal neuroimaging technologies for studying brain activity.
