Focal White Matter Changes in Laryngeal Dystonia


We investigate neural mechanisms of isolated focal dystonia and tremor to determine the disorder-specific pathophysiology and develop novel diagnostic tools and therapeutic strategies for these patients. We use a variety of experimental approaches, including multimodal neuroimaging, advanced machine learning, clinical-behavioral testing, neuropathology, and genetics.
