Working to understand: brain network changes as consequence of neurological damage and disease progression.
1) Hand motor recovery after stroke with experimental therapies.
2) Development of MRI biomarkers for detection of disease progression in spinocerebellar ataxias.
3) Early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease with DTI.
