Finding a break in fog: Study seeks to understand Lupus and the brain
Dr. John Hanly, Division of Rheumatology, is featured in the QEII Times for his lupus research.
Dr. John Hanly, and neuropsychologist Dr. John Fisk, are collaborating with investigators in the Biomedical Translational Imaging Centre (BIOTIC) on the Lupus Brain Map Study, which began this June. Eventually up to fifty patients with lupus will go through a series of standard cognitive tests, complimented by two forms of brain imaging - MEG Imaging, which maps the brain’s electrical activity, and Functional MRI, monitoring the consumption of oxygen by different parts of the brain. In this way, the Lupus Brain Map Study aims to link abnormalities in novel brain imaging with the real world cognitive impairments of Lupus patients.
