Multi-contrast MR imaging of awake macaque monkeys


Awake non human primate imaging enables us to detect structural and functional features in brain networks in cognizant monkeys and allows for repeated measurement without anesthesia related burden for the animal. This study aimed to demonstrate the feasibility and robustness of multi contrast MRI acquisitions across sessions and subjects in awake macaque monkeys.

My research focuses on the acquisition and processing of multi-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data. I am particularly interested in imaging myelin and iron in the central nervous system and studying healthy aging in non-human primates using Diffusion-weighted Imaging (DWI), Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM), Magnetization Transfer Imaging, and T1 and T2-relaxometry.
