Dr. Holland's research currently focuses on advanced neuroimaging applications of MRI in pediatrics. His major focus is on functional MRI of language, hearing and neuroplasticity following brain injury. His research in brain imaging extends to studies in small animals and the use of a 7 Tesla small animal MRI system for micro imaging in mouse and rat models brain development and brain injury.
