Neuroimaging — Department of Psychiatry

We can measure brain activity in the millisecond time scale using either magnetoencephalography (MEG) or electroencephalography (EEG). These methods record the magnetic fields or electrical currents that result from communication between groups of brain cells. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) we are able to measure brain structure, activity, and chemical composition. With positron emission tomography (PET) we investigate the action of drugs in the brains of patients and other volunteers.

Our research groups are currently running studies into many disorders including: autism spectrum disorder, Alzheimer’s disease, depression, motor neuron disease, Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, gambling problems, as well as investigating many aspects of healthy brain function, including memory and face processing.
