Imaging to investigate the brain in health and disease
The Cognitive Neuroimaging team based at Monash Biomedical Imaging focuses on the application of innovative neuroimaging technologies to understand the neural bases of cognitive function in health and disease.
Led by Dr Sharna Jamadar, the group specialises in structural, functional, vascular and metabolic imaging using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET). They apply world-class multimodal neuroimaging techniques to understand healthy ageing, neurodegenerative diseases and parenthood.
The Cognitive Neuroimaging team is conducting a range of research projects including:
- Cognitive compensation in super-agers
- Vascular and iron imaging in healthy ageing
- Development of simultaneous functional MRI – functional PET imaging techniques
- The neural bases of parenthood
- Radiotracer Administration for High Temporal Resolution Positron Emission Tomography of the Human Brain: Application to FDG-fPET
