Dr. Oury Monchi's lab has been a pioneer in using different neuroimaging techniques to study the origins and evolution of cognitive deficits in Parkinson's disease with the ultimate goal of early prediction of dementia in the disease. Interactions between cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms are also being studied. In addition, non-medication therapies such as transcranial magnetic stimulation and cognitive training are also being explored. Methods used include: functional and anatomical MRI, TMS, PET, neuropsychological evaluations, and genotyping.
The PCAN Lab is home to the Tourmaline Oil Chair in Parkinson’s Disease
