Linking symptoms to brain regions
Powerful advancements in electrical neuroimaging allow 3-D rendering of brain dysregulation to objectively define relationships to illness symptoms.
Studying brain wave patterns & interactions
Billions of neurons give rise to oscillations involved in hierarchical processing of cognition and behavior.
NCRI aims to advance the fundamental knowledge of brain impairment in neurological diseases
NCRI conducts basic, applied and translational research using the newest and most innovative neuroimaging techniques. This helps to acquire new information that is critically important to defining relationships between symptoms and brain activity. This information will aid us in gaining new insights in discovery of disease mechanisms, and developing disease-modifying treatments, monitoring treatment progress, and obtaining more meaningful and sustained health outcomes.
Innovative Brain Research
Our research uses electrical neuroimaging methods to measure brain cells directly at high temporal resolution. This approach is advantageous since the nervous system operates in the millisecond time domain, we are able to capture subtle nuances.
Specializing in M.E. Syndrome
Our mission is to bring Myalgic Encephalomyelitis Syndrome into the same status as other neurological disease such as multiple sclerosis, migraine syndrome, and encephalitis. The World Health Organization (WHO) classifies ME under Diseases of the Nervous System-->Postviral Fatigue Syndrome (8E59).
Knowledge & Resources
The NCRI develops models to predict how the brain will react to neurological insults in everyday life. Therefore, part of our mission is to help others understand how these insults take place, and what to do when they happen. We also can help with decisions about when to seek access to medical care.
