Message from the Principal Investigators
Thank you for your interest in our Institutional Review Board-approved study, Neuroimaging of Anesthetic Modulation of Human Consciousness.
As seasoned researchers and imaging scientists, we have focused on this area for the last two decades. Both of us have written more than 100 manuscripts, many of which are on this topic.
Our team is interested in discovering the mechanisms by which anesthetics produce loss of consciousness. We ask the following questions: Does consciousness really disappear when the patient is not responding? What happens to the thinking brain when it is anesthetized?
Again, thank you for visiting our website to learn more about this exciting study.
