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 work with the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, as well as Fletcher Allen Health Care.
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 influencec on brain function, with particular regard to post-menopausal women.
We utilize many resources, including the University of Vermont MRI Center for Biomedical Imaging, Vermont Clinical Research Center, and the Vermont Advanced Computing Core.
