Project Overview

Brain scans from MRI machines are an important research tool for studying psychiatric and neurological disorders in children. MRI lets us study brain structure, and functional MRI (fMRI) lets us also study brain function. In fMRI, each child’s brain images need to be lined up in a special way so…

Project Overview

The hippocampus is the brain region which shows the most severe changes in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Magnetic resonance imaging can be used to measure these changes in order to improve diagnosis and evaluate potential treatment options for patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The hippocampus is not a uniform brain region,…

Project Overview

Neonatal strokes occur in approximately 1 in 1500 term births and is the leading cause of hemiplegic cerebral palsy (HCP). The ischemic event leaves most children with life-long motor impairments, and in many cases the effects of rehabilitation are minimal. One potential mechanism for further enhancing the effects of therapy…

Project Overview

We live in a world profoundly shaped by social behaviours involving interactions and communications between conspecifics of a given species. All mammals, ranging from primates to rodents, depend on each other to survive and reproduce. For children and young adults, neglect and being deprived of social contact are particularly detrimental.…
