Research interest(s)/area of expertise
The influence of cardiopulmonary capacity on white matter integrity and myelination of the brain and nervous system. We examine these physiological challenges incorporating biomarker screening that includes assessment of hormonal and behavioral responses. A core aspect of our research includes the utilization of imaging techniques (PET and MRI) to investigate structural and functional responses of the brain. An overriding goal of this work is to identify biological signals that will help predict disease risk and inform course of treatment.
