The Microvascular Basis of Alzheimer-like dementias

We are exploring the neuropathology of dementia, with a focus on the role of microvascular degeneration as the precipitating cause of Alzheimer-like dementias. more...

Neuroprotection: protecting the central nervous system (retina and brain) from degeneration

Using rodent models and clinical trials, we are exploring strategies to protect the retina and brain from degeneration, in models of age-related macular degeneration, Alzheimer-like more...

Marker-free motion tracking for motion-compensated clinical brain imaging

Even small movements of the human head during positron emission tomography (PET) imaging can dramatically degrade the usability of brain images. In this project you will develop and more...

Exploring the neurobiology of Parkinson’s disease with multimodal techniques

This study will examine the neurobiology underlying some of the most troubling features of Parkinson's disease. This opportunity will utilise a range of novel neuroimaging, neurophy more...

Characterising and compensating for partial volume effects in motion-compensated brain imaging of small animals

Partial volume effects resulting from the limited spatial resolution of positron emission tomography (PET) remain a key limitation to accurate quantification of PET image data. This more...

Surface estimation of freely moving animals to enable quantitative neuroimaging

Accurate estimation of the highly non-rigid surface of freely moving animals is necessary to properly quantify data from brain imaging studies in which the animals are allowed to mo more...

A purpose-built brain imaging scanner for awake, freely moving animals

We recently developed a technology that enables the brain of a small animal to be imaged while the animal is free to move. This opens up a new class of experiments aimed at relating more...

Beyond Neuroinflammation: The Role of Microglia in Synaptic Plasticity

Microglia are the immune cells of the brain and are known to respond to infectious and non-infectious insults to the nervous system. Recently, a new function has been demonstrated f more...
