    Stressed heart-brain communication in Veterans with schizophrenia: neurovascular and autonomic mechanisms
    VA IK-2 CX-002457Apr 1, 2023 - Mar 31, 2028
    Role: PI
    Description: This project examines the hypothesis that the coupling between neural and vascular signals in the brain exhibit a stress-like pattern in schizophrenia. By simultaneously measuring cardiovascular physiology, neural activity from electroencephalography (EEG) and vascular dynamics from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), this study aims to derive novel biomarkers of heart-brain communication in schizophrenia.
    Neurometabolic mechanisms of aberrant resting brain activity in schizophrenia
    NIH IK1CX002089Apr 1, 2020 - Mar 31, 2022
    Role: Principal Investigator
    Description: This project examines the hypothesis that cerebral metabolic abnormalities underlie the neural deficits that contribute to psychiatric symptoms in schizophrenia. By simultaneously measuring neural activity from electroencephalography (EEG) and metabolic activity from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) this study aims to derive novel biomarkers of neurometabolic coupling in schizophrenia.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
