King's College London

Course Introduction

Current research projects cover neurodegeneration; epilepsy; stroke; pain; psychosis; affective disorders; developmental disorders and normal brain function; using a battery of neuroimaging techniques which include perfusion; diffusion; functional and structural imaging. Complementary research in imaging physics and analysis supports these applications. Basic scientific research is also performed in models of neuropsychiatric disease, using a diverse array of neuroimaging techniques, including pharmacological MRI and spectroscopy techniques. In conjunction with non'MR methods such as microscopy and autoradiography, our understanding of the patho'physiological mechanisms underlying disease is enhanced and informs the development of novel therapeutic interventions. In addition, improved understanding of the biological processes that underlie MR signal changes advances the crucial role of MR in non'invasive assessment of neuropsychiatric disease.
