Ludovica Griffanti

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

My current research focuses on MRI data collection, organisation and analysis of two clinical cohorts currently being recruited in the Oxford Parkinson’s Disease Centre (OPDC) and the Stroke Prevention Research Unit (SPRU).
The OPDC aims to identify early changes in Parkinson’s disease patients before physical symptoms become apparent. The detection of the pre-symptomatic phase using biomarkers, including imaging markers, will allow for early diagnosis of the disease and early intervention through the use of potential neuroprotective therapies.
The SPRU aims to improve prevention of stroke and dementia in older age groups by earlier diagnosis, more reliable prognostication, and more effective use of existing preventive treatments.
I am particularly interested in resting state fMRI and the development of methodological approaches to optimise functional connectivity estimation and to perform detailed network analyses.
