Dr Luis Peraza Rodriguez

Research Associate

Background

I am Research Associate within the Institute of Neuroscience (ION). My main research interests are the Ageing Brain and Computational Analysis of Neurodegenerative Diseases. I investigate datasets from ageing healthy controls and patients acquired by different neuroimaging modalities such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in their functional and structural modalities (sMRI and fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), and magnetoencephalography (MEG). In the ION we have rich databases that we interrogate by innovative computational methods, and also we use available worldwide datasets dedicated to study ageing and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s disease).

Research

 

Currently my research is focused on understanding the core symptoms of Lewy body disease: Complex visual hallucinations, cognitive fluctuations and Parkinsonism. Mainly, my focus is on understanding what happens in the brain that triggers these symptoms with the aim to find biomarkers for an earlier diagnosis using non-invasive neuroimaging modalities.
