Abstract

This talk will start with a brief history of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) here in Nottingham, with a whistle-stop tour of the vast range of capabilities afforded by a modern MR scanner. Recent advancements have meant that we can use functional MRI to observe the changes in brain activity, functional connectivity and cerebral perfusion caused by the onset of disease or the administration of a drug. Further information can be gleaned by combining fMRI with other neuroimaging modalities such as functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) and electrophysiological measurements as well as structural MRI. Another specific interest of several research groups here in Nottingham is to apply these techniques to observe auditory function and structure, in individuals with varying degrees of hearing losses, tinnitus and/or hyperacusis to answer a range of clinical and research questions.

This seminar is hosted by Ian Shuttleworth
