Dr. Oury Monchi's lab has been a pioneer in using different neuroimaging techniques to study the origins and evolution of cognitive deficits in Parkinson's disease with the ultimate goal of early prediction of dementia in the disease. Interactions between cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms are also being studied. In addition mechanisms and applications of non-invasive brain stimulation devices such as Trancranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), Trancranial direct current stimulation (TDCS) and Low intensity focused ultrasound (LiFU) are being explored.

The PCAN Lab is home to the Tourmaline Oil Chair in Parkinson’s Disease
