Treatment of cognitive disorders based on functional brain imaging
06 / 2010 - 06 / 2015
We will investigate how dysfunctions in network interactions between brain regions can explain the physiological basis of various cognitive disorders. We will in particular focus on how the fronto-striatal system is involved in controlling activity in posterior regions. This will be investigated using a range of neuroimaging techniques including brain stimulation. For instance, we will explore how cognitive training protocols aimed at changing network properties can influence the fronto-striatal network. Likewise, it will be investigated how neurofeedback training can alter the brain network to reduce symptoms associated with cognitive disorders.
