  • Neural activity, blood flow and energy metabolism in the human brain.
  • Combining arterial spin labeling (ASL) methods with blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) methods to estimate changes in brain oxygen metabolism in response to a stimulus or a drug.
  • Mathematical modeling of imaging methods, the BOLD effect, and oxygen transport from blood to tissue.
  • Application of ASL methods to measure dynamic blood flow changes in the lung.
