Excellence in Clinical Neuroscience Research


The Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit studies biological and psychological mechanisms which underlie changes that occur in cognitive functioning associated with development and aging. We use advanced methodologies, including MRI, to understand how brain systems are altered in health and disease.




We study chronic pain and the effects of treatments including cognitive behavioral therapy and medications on brain structure and functioning, disorders that have a behavioral and cognitive componenet, such as Parkinson's disease and ADHD, and sex hormones and neurotransmitter influences on brain function, with particular regard to healthy aging.
