The Liverpool BRAIN (Brain Research Advanced Imaging Network)

Liverpool BRAIN banner


We are a clinically-oriented neuroimaging research group specialising in the application of advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to understand brain impairment in neurological disorders.

We have expertise in quantitative morphometric, diffusion-based and functional MRI applications to study the human brain using cutting-edge analysis techniques.

Of special interest to the lab is epilepsy and the development of imaging markers of treatment outcome and cognitive dysfunction. We also work in collaboration with other groups to further understand abnormal brain structure and function in movement disorders, neurodegenerative diseases, brain infections and other neurological disorders.

We seek to understand aberrant brain mechanisms in neurological disorders, help improve imaging diagnostic accuracy and identify reliable imaging prognostic markers of medical and neurosurgical treatment.

We use state-of-the-art neuroimaging methods to help improve diagnosis and predict prognosis in clinical populations.
