About the NRB

The Neuroimaging Research Branch attempts to uncover the neural underpinnings of human drug addiction using functional MRI, coupled with other techniques, in both human and animal populations. As a group we have paired behavioral, cognitive, pharmacological and genetic analyses with cutting-edge imaging methods including resting-state and task-based BOLD fMRI, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), MR spectroscopy (MRS), and EEG. Our scientific researchers work alongside a team of dedicated signal processors who are constantly refining the process of quantitative neuroimaging data analysis. The long-term objective of our research is to identify those at high risk for drug dependence, to inform the development of effective behavioral and pharmacological treatments for addiction, and to understand individual differences in response to both drug itself and to treatment options.
