Trigeminal neuralgia is a neurological condition that causes such severe, uncontrollable facial pain that some patients will kill themselves. The disease is difficult to diagnose and its causes are unknown. A new center dedicated to facial pain has recently been created at the U. Assistant Professor Christophe Lenglet, an MSI PI at the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, is part of the team at this new center. Professor Lenglet develops analysis tools for mapping brain connectivity and investigating neurodegenerative disorders. He and his group use MSI resources to run simulations and analyses of MRI brain data.
