Research areas

  • Multimodal brain imaging and MRI biomarkers of neurodegenerative brain diseases (human and translational research)- 3 ongoing JPND grants, SoMoPro grant
  • Central and peripheral pain - FP7 grant
  • Non-invasive brain stimulation in schizophrenia and in neurodegenerative brain diseases (mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease)
  • Multiple sclerosis and study of its mechanisms

Main objectives

  • Identify early diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease/ Parkinson’s disease (AD/PD) (PI: I. Rektorová)
  • Combine multimodal MRI/EEG and non-invasive brain stimulation (rTMS, tCDS) to modulate cognition and behaviour in AD/PD and schizophrenia
  • Understand and control central and peripheral pain
  • Identify immunopathological mechanisms of multiple sclerosis

Content of research

The main research focus is on study of early imaging, biochemical and genetic markers of neurodegenerative brain diseases (from an animal model to human studies), pathophysiological mechanisms for neuropathic pain, immunopathological mechanisms of multiple sclerosis, and cognitive and behavioural symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia. We particularly use multimodal brain and spinal cord imaging alone or in combination with noninvasive brain stimulation such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS). rTMS utilizes rapid magnetic pulses applied over the scalp with a small hand-held coil to induce precisely timed and localized electrical currents within the cortex of human subjects. It provides a non-invasive tool for studying pathophysiological mechanisms of various motor, cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms and may induce treatment effects. Other techniques have also been employed including quantitative sensory testing (QST), dynamic QST, and immunohistochemistry of dermal nerve fibers using skin biopsy.
