AREA DI RICERCA

Il gruppo sviluppa numerosi progetti di ricerca nel campo delle neuroimmagini strutturali (MRI) e molecolari (PET) nello studio delle malattie neurodegenerative, nel campo delle neuroimmagini funzionali (fMRI) per lo studio delle funzioni cognitive nella norma e delle loro modifiche associate a malattie neurologiche. L’unità è parte di numerosi progetti multicentrici e di Reti di Eccellenza Europei
