Description of Research Expertise

magnetic resonance, brain mapping, cerebral blood flow, brain injury

Brain physiology and pathophysiology of functional activation. Clinical and translational neuroimaging.

Magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy with an emphasis on magnetic resonance techniques used to image brain function in addition to brain structure. Optical spectroscopy and imaging.

Overall research focuses on cerebral blood flow and metabolism under normal and conditions and in response to brain injury. Specific conditions under investigation include functional activation of human brain in response to cognitive and sensorimotor tasks, epilepsy, cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, aging, and dementia. This research primarily utilizes magnetic resonance techniques including functional imaging techniques and spectroscopy, often correlated with other methods.

Description of Clinical Expertise

headache, facial pain syndromes, stroke
