Title Treatment of cognitive disorders based on functional brain imaging

Abstract

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.
