Research Overview
My research has been focused on developing novel magnetic resonance imaging methodologies for measuring neurovascular parameters in humans including cerebral blood volume (CBV), cerebral blood flow (CBF), and cerebral metabolism rate of oxygen (CMRO2). Such parameters are critical for understanding brain activities via functional MRI, and they are also useful markers for alternations of basal physiologies in neurodegerative processes. The developed techniques have been used for understanding Alzheimer's disease, Schizophrenia, and aging. I am currently working on developing a new MR pulse sequence for measuring regional venous oxygenation envisioning application to Stroke study. Another topic of my recent interest is neural plasticity, for which functional connectivity MRI is used to measure changes in resting state neural activity after training/learning.
