Neuroimaging (in vivo) Research

Investigators in the neuroimaging (in vivo) research interest group at Stark Neurosciences Research Institute are also involved with the Indiana Institute of Biomedical Imaging Sciences (IIBIS) and the Center for Neuroimaging (CfN), which support a wide array of cutting-edge neuroimaging research at Indiana University School of Medicine. The CfN hosts a diverse group of faculty with expertise in neuroscience, neuropsychology, genetics, computational neuroscience, network sciences, physics, biomedical engineering, computer science, informatics and ‘omics. With state-of-the art preclinical and clinical magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography scanners, CfN faculty develop innovative methods and technologies to expand and optimize the types of information we can extract from the brain and to explore novel ways of processing and analyzing complex datasets. There is a strong focus on integrative approaches that bring together forward-thinking ways of conceptualizing how different types of neuroimaging data relate to each other, and untangling the intersection of brain imaging information, neuropsychological variables, and genetic and peripheral biomarkers. The power of these technologies are then applied to a variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including: normative aging and neurodegenerative disease (with a focus on Alzheimer’s disease), alcohol and substance use disorders, traumatic brain injury, and adolescent and adult neuropsychiatric disorders. The CfN is a highly collaborative environment, and new scientific relationships and translational research are strongly encouraged.
