Dr. Maravilla's research focuses on anatomical and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) of developmental disorders. A major aspect of his research involves developing new techniques and new medical applications for MR-related imaging, including exploration of functional MRI and MRS to better understand normal and pathologic brain physiology. His research interests include the application of new MRI techniques for analyzing central nervous system (CNS) pathology, neuro-imaging of multiple sclerosis, and the use of high-resolution MRI for study of peripheral nervous system disorders.
Maravilla is currently involved with developing higher field MR techniques for molecular imaging study of small animal rodent models to explore neuroscience questions involving neuropathology, neurophysiology, and CNS genetic phenotyping. He is also pursuing studies in brain functional MRI to address dysfunctional brain processes in disorders such as demyelinating disease, dyslexia, and other neurological disorders.
