Habib Benali was the director of the unit 678, Laboratory of Functional Imaging of the French National of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and Paris 6 University (UPMC) since 2008, and the co-director of the International Laboratory of Neuroimaging and Modelisation of the INSERM-UPMC and Montreal University since 2007. He is currently the co-director of the unit 1164, Laboratory of Biomedical Imaging of the INSERM/CNRS and UPMC. His current research group interests are in human brain mapping and functional connectivity analysis using multimodal analysis of electromagnetic and hemodynamic processes in the brain and spinal cord. He developped biomathematical models to better understand the mechanisms of brain signals (BOLD fMRI, MRS, EEG, optical imaging) and functional and anatomical connectivity (fMRI and EEG functional connectivity, dynamic functional connectivity and anatomical connectivity using diffusion imaging). He proposed macroscopic models of the spatial extent of the anatomical networks and their functional dynamics. Together with members of my his research team in Paris, he will use his experience to assist investigators collaborated in analyzing and interpreting functional and anatomical brain data of healty subjects and patients.
