Neuroimaging and human cognition


Voir la version en français

The principal objective of our team is to combine advanced neuroimaging techniques and state-of-the-art mobile assessments of daily life behaviors, emotions and cognitive processes in order to understand the etiology and pathophysiology of CNS disorders. MRI allows for the characterization of neural networks involved in cognitive and emotional processes and their dysfunction, assessing the structural and functional integrity both of brain regions and the connections between regions of the brain network. Recent studies have also demonstrated the contribution of jointly using MRI and PET techniques, an approach which opens numerous new opportunities to identify structural and functional brain dysfunction and neuropathological tissue damage. The coupling of imaging data with that acquired through mobile technologies, including cellular telephones and actigraphy, provides highly novel information concerning the daily life correlates of brain markers as well as new perspectives for treatment strategies.
