  主要研究内容  
The Thompson lab studies brain function using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Tools such as “functional MRI” (fMRI) have helped researchers understand the brain, but if we want to use MRI to develop drugs and treatments for neural and psychological conditions, we must link the microscopic scale of cells and receptors to the macroscopic scale of networks and whole-brain metabolism. We intend to develop quantitative techniques to use MRI to measure brain function in terms of oxygen metabolism, glucose metabolism, and metabotropic receptor function. Our long-term goal is to use MRI techniques as a tool for guiding development of drugs and treatments for neuropsychological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Schizophrenia.
