How Does the Brain Create the Mind?

Through the development of modern methods of neuroimaging, we are interested in exploring the relationships between structure and function in the human brain, particularly as related to higher level cognition, such as mental imagery. Our lab is involved in the creation of technologies - including:

    Rapid Methods of MR Imaging

    Fusion of Electrophysiology and fMRI

    Advanced approaches to MR data analysis

    Ultra-Low Field MRI using SQUID detection

Paul Macey

I study the brain in people with sleep-disorders, particularly obstructive sleep apnea, linking physical and psychological symptoms to where and how the brain is affected. Currently, I am looking at these influences in males and females separately, and assessing the impact of interventions for sleep apnea and high blood pressure. I study functional, structural, and chemical aspects of the brain.

Director of the Ingestive behavior and Obesity program at the UCLA Center for Neurobiology of Stress.

Main interest: the role of brain control on satiety/hunger signals and ingestive behavior in health and in obesity. topics for current projects at the Staglin: effect of bariatric surgery on brain activity/structure related to satiety/hunger and ingestive behavior.

Dr. Gary Small’s research focuses on the early detection and prevention of age-related cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease and related condition. His group has developed novel brain imaging (MRI, PET) tools that are useful on combination with genetic risk measures and other biomarkers in identifying people at risk for dementia years before symptoms emerge.
