Our research in neuroscience, especially neuroimaging, is conducted through close links with York Neuroimaging Centre, a research facility for investigating human brain function using non-invasive imaging techniques. Facilities include 3-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging, whole-head magnetoencephalography, high-density electroencephalography, transcranial magnetic stimulation and high performance parallel computing.
The Centre has become the hub of a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding structural, chemical, functional and theoretical aspects of neuronal mechanisms. We work closely with colleagues in the Departments of Chemistry and Psychology at the University of York, and with the Department of Psychology at the University of Hull.
Gary's research interests include:
Dr Aziz Asghar is a neuroscientist who investigates brain neuronal activity using a collaborative and translational approach in healthy participants and in patient groups.
At the University of Hull, he leads an interdisciplinary team based in the Enterprise Centre which has developed low cost portable brain electroencephalography (EEG) and heart electrocardiogram (ECG) monitors which wirelessly pair to a mobile phone or tablet device for use in novel research projects and experimental designs.
He undertakes clinical and non-clinical research studies using functional MRI and MEG scanners at the York Neuroimaging Centre.
