Our research focuses on developing and applying novel neuroimaging methods for translational neuroscience studies to relate changes in neurochemistry and brain function. We are interested in investigating neuroreceptor systems in responses to behavioral and/or pharmacological challenges in health and diseases, with an emphasis on applied substance abuse and psychiatric disorders. In addition, we are working on pushing the limits of existing PET and MRI methods to improve their spatial and temporal capability.
