Research Interests

I am interested in how cognitive dysfunctions in neurodegenerative disorders are modulated by the locus coeruleus noradrenergic system. My research focuses on the identification of sensitive biomarkers for probing the system in patients using neuromelanin-sensitive imaging technique, structural and functional MRI in combination with pharmacological interventions. I am involved in a clinical trial investigating the therapeutic potentials of atomoxetine and related brain mechanisms in treating impulsivity in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy.
