- Dr. Marchand's primary research interest is in the basal ganglia and related circuitry in the human brain. The basal ganglia circuits are involved in motor, cognitive and emotional processing and there is compelling evidence that these circuits play a role in the neurobiology of multiple neurological and psychiatric disorders. Dr. Marchand and colleagues use functional and structural neuroimaging methods to enhance our understanding of how these circuits function in normal individuals as well how basal ganglia circuit dysfunction may play a role in the pathology of neuropsychiatric conditions.
- Dr. Marchand mentors residents and graduate students in the areas of functional neuroimaging and mood anxiety disorders research. He is a faculty member of The Brain Institute at The University of Utah.
