Neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimer and Parkinson, Dementia with Lewy body) studies using NMR, MRI, fMRI and MRS (in vivo) spectroscopy using 3T Philips MRI Scanner
Research Goal : Integration of medical physics and technology (MRI, MRS and fMRI) to understand brain disorders and identification of causal molecular process. Eventually that could lead to therapeutic discovery/development.
Ongoing Funded Studies
Brain chemical changes and its correlation in neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Alzheimer, Parkinson etc) using MRS techniques
Brain integrity and its correlation with clinical status using MRI
Memory performance and its analysis using functional MRI (fMRI)
Image Processing from fMRI, MRS and MRI data
Imaging work at NBRC are performed in collaboration with Dr. Manjari Tripathi, MD,DM (Department of Neurology, All India Institute of Medical Science, New Delhi)
