We are interested in investigating the neural underpinnings of motor, cognitive, and behavioral problems in patients with movement disorders, especially Parkinson’s disease, using multimodal neuroimaging.
Our work investigates the changes in large-scale brain network organization in patients with movement disorders. We currently use resting-state functional MRI, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, and Dopamine Transporter scanning and will be expanding our imaging repertoire to include PET imaging.
We also use functional MRI-based neurofeedback training as a potential treatment modality in Parkinson's disease.
