Scientific interests

My main scientific interest pertains human brain pulsations and their association with sleep, clearance of waste products and changes in intracerebral pressure. 

We investigate these pulsations by means of the novel MREG-sequence (on the 3T MR-scanner) which is thought to be able to image glymphatic-like pulsations in the human brain.
