Dr. Jiang’s research focuses on multi-modal fMRI brain imaging technology in rodent models. He is developing a novel multichannel fiber-optic mediated extracellular glutamate and intracellular calcium recording with high-filed MRI to study different brain states. Dr. Jiang’s work also includes developing novel single-vessel fMRI methods and investigating the neurovascular dynamic changes underlying coma induction and reemergence in rodent models. He is now on the faculty at the Martinos Center and a member of the Translational Neuroimaging and Neural Control Laboratory
