PET-MRI Study of the Cholinergic system in Schizophrenia: a Pilot Study

In collaboration with Dr. Lauri Tuominen (PI), this feasibility pilot study looks to determine if [18F]FEOBV positron emission tomography (PET) can be delivered and used at the Royal’s Brain Imaging Centre to study the cholinergic system of the heart and brain. These data will form the basis for a future grant application of a study of cognitive deficit in schizophrenia using [18F]FEOBV PET and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
