Dr. Basavaraju G Sanganahalli received his PhD in Neuroscience from the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences (NIMHANS) in the year 2004. After his postdoctoral training at the Magnetic Resonance Research Center, Yale University School of Medicine in the areas of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and neurophysiology, he joined the research faculty of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging in the year 2008. He is one of the core scientists in the functional neuroimaging core at Quantitative Neuroscience with Magnetic Resonance (QNMR center). His research interests are in the development and applications of multimodal biomedical imaging methodologies to study brain function in animal models. Dr. Sanganahalli is applying multimodal imaging tools (fMRI, DTI, electrophysiology, optical imaging) to understand brain function in healthy as well as psychiatric/neurological disorders (Schizophrenia, Epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, early life stress, Stroke, Spinal cord injury, Alzheimer's and Aging) in animal models, and facilitating the translation of basic neuroscience research to various clinical applications.
