NeuroImage anniversary issue with DRCMR contribution

The renowned scientfic journal NeuroImage is publishing a special 20th anniversary issue in June 2012, entitled  "Neuroimaging: Then, Now and The Future".

James Rowe and Hartwig Siebner have the honour of contributing with a review on movement disorders and the brain-mind interaction in general. James is a former DRCMR employee, now heading a research group at Cambridge University, England, whereas Hartwig is professor and head of research at the DRCMR.

The review is entitled The motor system and its disorders and has the following highlights:

  • Establishing organisational principles of the motor system.
  • Motor learning, inhibition, mirror neuron systems and action selection.
  • Understanding human movement disorders, stroke and plasticity.
  • Innovations in integrated multimodal imaging and new brain-behaviour models.

Currrently, an ambitious research project, ContAct, addressing the mind&body interaction is being conducted at the DRCMR and associated sites. The study became possible after a major Lundbeck grant was awarded to Hartwig Siebner.

The NeuroImage special issue edited by Arthur Toga, Richard Frackowiak and John Mazziotta contains a range of articles by high-profiled researchers on the state and future of neuroimaging.
