Motor Planning in Children with Cerebral Palsy
PI: Kurz, MJ; Co-I: Wilson, TW.
This award uses MEG imaging to investigate abnormal neural oscillatory activity in the primary motor cortices of children with cerebral palsy during movement. Participants complete several tasks during MEG that require different motor planning operations, based on the complexity of the movement.

This award provides funding for MEG/MRI studies of motor and cognitive control experiments.
Attention Bias Modification Treatment for Warzone-Related PTSD: A Randomized Clinical Trial and Magnetoencephalography (MEG) Study
PI: Badura Brack, A; Co-I: Wilson, TW.
Source: At Ease, USA (nonprofit organization)This award provides funding to conduct a randomized clinical trial (RCT) of an emerging cognitive behavioral treatment, attention bias modification treatment (ABMT), for combat related posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In addition to the RCT, this award funds MEG recordings of veterans with PTSD and combat-exposed veterans without PTSD.
Chronic HIV Infection and Aging in NeuroAIDS (CHAIN) Center
PI: Fox, HS; Co-I: Wilson, TW.
This is a Center grant to provide Administrative and Core Support for scientists investigating neuroAIDS.
Center for the Neural Basis of Motor Development & Rehabilitation
PI: Stuberg, WA; Co-I: Wilson, TW.

This award provides startup money for a brain imaging center that is dedicated to comparative neuroplasticity research using different rehabilitation methods in children with developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy and childhood apraxia. Dr. Wilson oversees the imaging aspects of the project.
Techniques used in the laboratory
Diffusion-tensor imaging (DTI)
Structural magnetic resonance imaging (sMRI
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS
Intracranial recordings (electrocorticography, or ECoG)
