Dr. Mandeville focuses on understanding relationships between imaging signals and physiology and using this information to improve information content derived from noninvasive neuroimaging. Research leverages all aspects of multimodal imaging to understand functional imaging methods and the brain; work includes characterization of imaging biomarkers, improvement of functional imaging capabilities (e.g., contrast to noise ratios), and development of optimal analysis strategies. Prior work included development of contrast-enhanced fMRI and quantitative models of BOLD signal, and more recent efforts have focused on combined PET/fMRI to understand occupancy-function relationships and to quantitatively model PET and fMRI signals in the context of pharmacological stimuli.
