Our team studies variation in brain structures, both in terms of their morphological characteristics and in terms of their connections, using magnetic resonance imaging of people without neurological diseases of different ages and backgrounds. Variation patterns in these structures are the result of complex processes of development in which different environmental factors intervene. In this sense, part of our team focuses on how early malnutrition influences on the structural features of the brain, for which we apply experimental models in which different types of nutritional restrictions are modeled at particular moments of development.
