The Neuro Team
Alan Evans, PhD
Dr. Alan Evans uses three-dimensional computer techniques to study functional neuroanatomy. He collaborates with cognitive neuroscientists to examine memory, language, mood and sensory processing. A stimulus or task is presented to subjects and changes in their cerebral blood flow are measured by PET and MRI. Dr. Evans also contributes to a North American electronic network that links brain mapping laboratories. He and his colleagues are analyzing data derived from more than 400 brains to make a neuroanatomy atlas. The imaging techniques developed in the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre are also being used in large-scale, multi-centre clinical trials.
