Preclinical Projects

Our preclinical imaging group employs MRI and MRS tools using a very high field (9.4T) small bore Bruker scanner, electrophysiology, optical imaging and various behavioral tools to a) understand the neurophysiological bases of the BOLD signal, b) develop novel MR imaging tools and c) apply these tools to understand the neurobiological consequences of acute and chronic drug administration. Awake and anesthetized rodent and non-human primate models are employed to study nicotine, cocaine and methamphetamine abuse.
