Cerebral Haemodynamics Group
Welcome to the Cerebral Haemodynamics Group, headed by Professor Stephen Payne. Currently we are located both at National Taiwan University and the University of Oxford.
We are interested in cerebral blood flow and metabolism, in particular the control of blood flow and how this is affected in pathological conditions (such as stroke and dementia). To investigate this, we construct mathematical models of the brain, using multiple length and time scales to understand its behaviour over a wide range of lengths and times. We also collaborate with many groups around the world to validate models and to interpret clinical data, to help clinicians in their diagnosis and treatment of cerebral diseases such as stroke.
