Research

Currently, I'm chair of Turku Brain and Mind Center, and an Associate Professor of Structural and Functional Neuroimaging and Instrumentation at University of Turku. I'm a consultant neurologist at the Department of Neurology at Neurocenter, Turku University Hospital. I lead Brain Stimulation and Neuroimaging laboratory at University of Turku (www.turkubrainlab.fi).

My lab's research work focuses on investigating the neurobiological mechanisms of brain disorders and aims to facilitate development of new treatment options. I am interested in a wide spectrum of brain disorders but especially neurological movement disorders and addictions. I use multimodal approach, combining state-of-the-art brain imaging methods (MRI, PET, SPECT) and brain stimulation techniques (TMS, DBS).
