3-D chemical imaging technical development and application
GABA imaging applications
diffusion-weighted spectroscopic imaging development and application
My research focuses on the application of innovative structural, functional and chemical imaging techniques to investigate neuropsychiatric disorders.
A particular focus is brain developmental processes that underlie autism and related developmental disorders. Other areas of research have been bipolar disorder, panic/ anxiety disorders and obsessive-compulsive disorder, as well as the brain pharmacokinetics of medications used to treat these disorders.
