Several imaging techniques including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (anatomical or functional) radiography, thermography, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, CT, Positron Emission Tomography may be exploited to study the anatomical and functional features of the neuro-cardio-vascular system. In our research group, we study how the dynamical information gathered from image processing might be of help in the understanding of the nervous systems activity.
