- Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) Core
- Methods and Evaluation Core
The Sleep Core focuses on cognitive impairments and complications produced by sleep disorders such as
insomnia and sleep apnea, along with the overall impact on PTSD. The efficacy of various treatment plans,
including behavioral and pharmaceutical, are evaluated for implementation.
Key Personnel: Leah Friedman, Ph.D., and Jamie Zeitzer, Ph.D.
Genes cause much of the predisposition to major types of psychiatric disorders thus; the goal of the Genetics
core is the identification of predisposing genes that is likely to lead to greater understanding of the brain
mechanisms involved in these disorders. This could lead to the discovery of new or improved treatments.
Key Personnel: Tamara Beale and Phoebe Liao
Magentic Resonance Spectoscopy (MRS) Core
The goal of the Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) Core of is to use the most advanced brain imaging
technology to study neurodegenerative diseases with the aim of improving diagnosis, progression, and
For more information, refer to Center for Imaging of Neurogenerative Diseases.
Key Personnel: Michael Weiner, Ph.D. and Linda Chao, Ph.D.
Methods and Evaluation Core
The purpose of the Methods & Evaluation Core is to evaluate different aspects of the program to inform
continuous modification and improvement.
Key Personnel: Craig Rosen, Ph.D., Mark Greenbaum, Ph.D., Art Noda, and Laura Lazzeroni, Ph.D.
