The focus of the lab is to use advanced neuroimaging techniques to investigate brain structural and functional differences associated with aging, vascular and neurodegenerative diseases among diverse community populations. We also evaluate the genetics of MRI endophenotypes. The primary structural and functional imaging techniques that we have been using are positron emission tomography (PET) with FDG, amyloid and tau tracers, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
We provide MRI quality control and volumetric analysis to research studies across the United States.
Our goal is to investigate the development of Alzheimer’s Disease and discover new techniques and biomarkers for Alzheimer’s Disease identification and treatment.
We use and develop the latest tools in machine learning and database management to store and analyze over 20,000 MRI, PET, and fMRI scans.
