Multimodal Neuroimaging in Neuropsychiatric Disorders Laboratory

About us

The Multimodal Neuroimaging in Neuropsychiatric Disorders Laboratory is a multidisciplinary research laboratory at the Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders Program at Duke-National University of Singapore Medical School , Singapore. Lab members have access to a research-dedicated Siemens 3T MAGNETOM Prisma fit, high density electroencephalography (EEG), EEG-fMRI equipment, eye-tracking devices, and high performance computing cluster and storage.

Our lab studies the human neural bases of cognitive functions and the associated vulnerability patterns in aging and neuropsychiatric disorders using multimodal neuroimaging and psychophysical techniques. We are interested in the large-scale brain structural and functional networks in healthy developing and ageing brain and symptoms-related changes in diseases such as neurodegenerative disorders and psychosis. Statistical, computational, and machine learning methods are developed to analyze and fuse multimodal neuroimaging data. By integrating longitudinal behavior, neuroimaging, and genotype data, our long-term goal is to investigate the interactions among brain network dynamics, behavior, diseases, and genotypes to develop non-invasive biomarkers for early detection, differential diagnosis, progression monitoring, and treatment design.

We are currently looking for post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, graduate students and research interns. Please see job openings.
