My Research:

My main interest is in the neurobiology and psychopharmacology of mood and anxiety disorders, with specific focus on the limbic system. We use advanced MRI applications (high-resolution volumetric MRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS)) to study the organization and functions of the human brain. Neuroimaging research in my lab involves extensive collaborations between departments of Biomedical Engineering, Psychiatry, Neurology and Centre for Neuroscience.
