BRAIN STIMULATION, TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY & MEMORY

Our lab is intrinsically involved in deciphering the link between TBI and the development of dementia/AD by utilizing cognitive assessments, neuroimaging, and clinical biomarkers to provide innovative therapeutic treatments.

DIAGNOSTIC ENDEAVORS

Traumatic Brain Injury & Memory

Diagnostic Models

Our lab employs innovative algorithms to explore white matter tracts, functional connectivity, cortical thickness across the disease spectrum of traumatic brain injury (TBI), normal aging, dementia/Alzheimer's disease (AD), and psychiatric comorbid disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic disorder (PTSD). 

 

Using tractography methods developed at the Yeatman Lab at Stanford on diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) our lab is able to characterize 20 white matter fascicles (tracts) across an injured brain.

ENIGMA

Enhancing Neuro Imaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis

Research Consortium

The ENIGMA Consortium brings together researchers in imaging genomics to understand brain structure, function, and disease, based on brain imaging and genetic data. We welcome brain researchers, imagers, geneticists, methods developers, and others interested in cracking the neuro-genetic code!

Our lab is actively involved in several working groups such as functional MRI, traumatic brain injury, intimate partner violence, and COVID-19. The goal is to translate evidence based research in collaboration with international researchers and develop guidelines for imaging and genomic research and treatment protocols.
