Dr. Greicius' research involves the use of functional MRI in conjunction with other imaging modalities to detect and characterize neural networks in healthy adults and patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. The clinical and research focus of the Stanford ADRC includes both Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. They are the most common and the second most common neurodegenerative disorders. We believe that research and patient care can be advanced by comparing and contrasting distinctive features of each.

Research Interest

The main research objective is to develop novel imaging biomarkers that will enhance the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, major depression, and schizophrenia.
