Videen Laboratory

Tom O. Videen, PhD

Tom Videen is a Research Associate Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Radiology.
Our laboratory studies functional activation of the brain and changes in brain physiology accompanying disease or other pathophysiology. We use PET, MRI and CT to study both human and non-human primates and have particular interests in stroke, traumatic brain injury and movement disorders. My focus is in developing and evaluating methodologies for quantitative analyses of these data.
