Welcome to the Brain Imaging Research Division of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences at the Wayne State University School of Medicine. Our primary research focus is the application of magnetic resonance imaging techniques to pressing issues in biological psychiatry. Magnetic resonance technology is applied to morphological neuroimaging (MRI), functional imaging (fMRI), in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), and in vitro high field MRS. By virtue of the range of neuroscience interests in the department of Psychiatry and the school of medicine, spanning from molecular to clinical neuroscience, the BRAIN is focused on clinical and translational neuroscience as it relates to MR technology. BRAIN offers Numerous educational and research opportunities in the application of MR to neuroscience.
