Neurovascular Coupling: Noninvasive Imaging Signatures of Microscopic Mechanisms
Neuroscience Seminar Series
Anna Devor, Ph.D., is an Associate Adjunct Professor in the departments of Neurosciences and Radiology at UCSD and is PI on R01 and R21 grants from NINDS and NIBIB. She also holds an appointment as instructor in radiology in the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Devor is an expert in neuro-vasuclar-metabolic coupling and regulation of cerebral blood flow.
Dr. Devor is known for her innovative application of optical imaging techniques for in vivo imaging of brain activity. She has published extensively in imaging and recording in vivo in rats and mice using 2-photon microscopy, calcium-sensitive dye imaging, voltage-sensitive dye imaging, intrinsic imaging of blood flow and oxygenation and intra/extracellular electrophysiological recordings.
The overall goals of her research are to combine direct and quantitative measurement of hemodynamic and neuronal parameters simultaneously with fMRI aiming to understand the relationship between the BOLD response and the underlying neuroglial activity. This includes establishing microscopic correlates of large-scale (populational) hemodynamic and neuroglial signals with a focus on the integration of macro- and microscopic imaging measurements.
