Description: Neuroscience Seminar Series

Dr. Owen's lab research combines functional neuroimaging (fMRI, PET, EEG), with neuropsychological studies in brain-injured patients and healthy volunteers. They seek to understand the effects of brain injury in order to improve diagnosis and early detection and to find possible new treatments. For example, they study patients who have sustained the sorts of severe brain injuries that result in vegetative state and other so-called ‘disorders of consciousness’. They also study neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s in order to try to understand more about the causes and consequences of the memory, perception and reasoning problems that many of these patients experience. Finally, they develop web-based tools for the assessment of cognitive function in health and disease (cambridgebrainsciences.com) and investigate different ways to rehabilitate or 'train' the human brain.
