Made for the tourist trade, this tray seems to have been bought by Isabella Gardner at a hotel in Varanasi, India. The building depicted on the tray recalls local monuments, which have onion-shaped domes, domed kiosks (chhatris), and arched entrances. The Bara Imambara in nearby Lucknow, a complex of structures built around 1784, with many gateways, courtyards, and monumental facades, may have been the source of the motif. Object: Unknown artist, Tray, about 1880, brass, tin, and lac.

Kilachand Center’s New MRI Scanner Yields Outstanding Data

“Everything went swimmingly and the computers are churning away at the data,” says Perrachione, who was part of a small team of BU researchers who worked closely on the CNC with Payette, the Boston architectural firm that designed the Kilachand Center, at 610 Commonwealth Avenue.

    Kilachand Center MRI Scanner Yields Outstanding Data | BU Today | Boston University
    Neuroscientist Tyler Perrachione, who studies speech and language, is starting a new research project-decoding what the human brain is hearing when the person is listening to speech. The Sargent College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences assistant professor of speech, language, and hearing sciences recently walked out of his office, crossed Commonwealth Avenue, and entered the Rajen Kilachand Center for Integrated Life Sciences & Engineering's Cognitive Neuroimaging Center (CNC).
