Dr. Nancy Lobaugh is an Independent Scientist with the Research Imaging Centre in the Campbell Family Mental Health Research Institute at CAMH, and an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Medicine.
Areas of Research
The major goal of Dr. Lobaugh’s research program has been to use neuroimaging methods to understand how changes in underlying anatomy across the lifespan support changes in functional brain networks. She has focused on the development of quantitative structural imaging sequences (qMRI) and analytical tools. qMRI is used to measure specific aspects of tissue integrity, such as myelin content and fiber density in white matter. These data will provide a foundation for understanding how changes in brain structure across the lifespan impact on brain network reorganization. The tools and techniques apply to research on brain reorganization in aging and in psychiatric disorders.
