Research

We develop advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) techniques to address neurobiological questions and apply them to neurological or psychiatric disorders. We are interested in:

Brainstem and cervical spinal cord neurocircuits

  • motor control
  • pain modulation
  • sensory¬†perception

Structure and function of the human habenula

  • reward
  • pain
  • arousal

Microstructural integrity of the human cervical spinal cord in neurological disorders

  • multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • spinal cord injury (SCI)
  • cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM)

Microstructural and functional integrity of the human optic nerve in optic neuropathies

  • optic neuritis
  • glaucoma
