The Diabetes and Obesity Team Science Group are pleased to present the first DOTS Seminar with guest speaker, Jeffrey Stanley, Ph.D. Wayne State University, on Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. in the multipurpose room of IBio, located at 6135 Woodward. The seminar is free; registration is requested.

Dr. Jeffrey Stanley will be presenting on “A Primer on novel neuroimaging techniques”. Dr. Stanley is an Associate Professor in the dept. of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences, and specializes in MR imaging and brain development.

Abstract:

Magnetic resonance neuroimaging continues to play a key role in advancing the understanding of neural mechanisms of different disorders led by the use of highly novel methods.  The purpose of the presentation is to introduce three different MR methods with application that include 1) the biochemical assessment of high-energy phosphate metabolism and membrane phospholipid metabolism using ³¹P MRS; 2) assessing the temporal dynamics of glutamate modulation in the hippocampus in response to memory formation; and 3) the specificity of myelin content and packing measurements in white matter and cortex using multity-echo Tâ‚‚ imaging. 

We hope you can join us for this interesting DOTS seminar!
