NEON: Investigate the functional brain changes in neonatal encephalopathy (NE) infants and the associated behavioral and cognitive consequences

Primary PI: Prof Arun Bokde (TCD)

  • Prof Arun Bokde (TCD)
  • Supervisory team: Prof Eleanor Molloy (TCD), Prof Elizabeth Nixon (TCD), Prof Declan Devane (NUIG)

Description

As part of the research project, the student will develop high level of expertise on brain injuries to neonates, neonatal neuroimaging, neuroimaging analysis and complex statistical techniques.

The goal of this project is to investigate the functional brain changes in neonatal encephalopathy (NE) infants and the associated behavioral and cognitive consequences. The project will use brain imaging data (structural MRI, functional MRI, diffusion imaging) to quantify the functional integrity of the neural networks and examine potential associations with inflammatory markers and clinical phenotypes. The student will be involved in data acquisition, analysis and writing reports on research results.
