Neuroradiology Research Unit
Neuroradiology research takes place at the Section of Neuroradiology and at the Neuroradiology Research Unit. Our aim is to
- develop and validate new methods to examine the structure and function of the brain and peripheral nervous system (PNS)
- understand disease mechanisms underlying major brain and PNS disorders
- develop and validate new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches for patients with brain and PNS disorders
- participate in clinical trials to improve patient management
Our research ranges from in vitro and animal studies to clinical studies and participation in clinical trials.
The Neuroradiology Research Unit is closely integrated with the Center of Functionally Integrative Neuroscience (CFIN) and serves as an experimental infrastructure for the researchers. See www.cfin.au.dk for additional information on basic neuroscience research and method development.
The Neuroradiology Research Unit has dedicated research facilities, including two 3.0 Tesla MR systems (75% use), a 306 channel magnetoencephalography (MEG) system (80% use), EEG and TMS systems, a 9.4 Tesla animal MR system, optical imaging laboratories including two two-photon microscopes, and a molecular biology laboratory.
