The N-LAB's mission is to develop novel neuroimaging and neuroengineering methods to integrate molecular and system neuroscience and solve brain science problems. We are specifically interested in understanding the neural mechanisms of reward, learning and memory in rodents’ brains.

We are located
at the Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC), the Department of Neuroscience and the Peter O’Donnel Brain Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center. With strong support from AIRC, the lab can access the most state-of-the-art resources for the preclinical small animal scanners (9.4T, 7T, 3T), PET, PET-MRI insert, and other imaging modalities. Supported by the Endowed Scholar Program, the lab has access to all 18 core facilities on campus with the latest equipment and technologies. Learn more about the lab, who we are, and what we do.
