Bio-Imaging lab


  • Acquisition and processing of high resolution in vivo Magnetic Resonance Imaging of small animals: diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI), functional MRI, resting state fMRI, perfusion MRI, Manganese Enhanced MRI. This research is performed on rat and mouse models for different neuropathologies and on songbirds as a model for neuronal plasticity, auditory processing and learning. Using these MRI techniques the focus of the research lies on early detection and understanding of the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration, neuro-developmental and mood disorders including Parkinson's, Huntington's, Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia and depression.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
