Researches at GIGA – CRC (Cyclotron Research Center) in vivo imaging range from radiopharmaceutical production to in vivo imaging with positron emission tomography and also with magnetic resonance imaging and electrophysiology.  Studies are conducted in small animals for brain, cancer or cardiology preclinical researches and for drug development, and in humans for understanding biological processes underlying sleep, mood, addiction, cognition (memory, attention, executive functions), movements, consciousness and their disorders (dementia, Parkinson, impaired consciousness, epilepsy…).
