After completing my Physics degree in the UK I moved back to Christchurch. My Masters in Medical Physics looks for changes in blood flow in different regions of the brain in Parkinson’s patients using perfusion MRI. This research will tell us more about what is happening in the brains of people with Parkinson’s, helping us understand how cerebrovascular health is related to cognitive decline in Parkinson’s disease.
