Magnetic Resonance made a giant leap in that direction through the employment of ultra-rapid acquisition techniques, which have enabled the measurement of variations in oxygen consumption levels arising from the BOLD effect and an estimation of the cellularity of tissues through the diffusion technique. PET has enabled Nuclear Medicine to measure the level of consumption of glucose in the tissue, by making use of ionizing radiation. It is largely employed in the investigation of tumors and metastasis, which have naturally increased the consumption of glucose due to a larger metabolic level. More recently, the Dynamic PET has enabled the assessment of the consumption of glucose over time and the measurement of the most active regions more precisely.

It will also address the methodologies of study of neurotoxicity relying on the use of insects-models. As well as this, it will look at ureases as virulence factors for pathogenic microorganisms, especially bacteria Helicobacter pylori and Proteus mirabilis and Cryptococcu yeasts.
Neuroinflammation/Multiple Sclerosis/ neuromyelitis optica The inflammation resulting from neurological diseases may be primarily involved with the physiopathology of immunomediated diseases of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica, ADEM - acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, autoimmune encephalitis and some neurological complications resulting directly or indirectly from viral or bacterial infections (e.g. meningoencephalitis). In other diseases, the inflammation plays a major role, but less clear than it is in strokes and in degenerative diseases of the central nervous system. The deregulation in the immune system, be it either temporary or permanent, may lead to injuries in the brain, bone marrow and peripheral nerves that cause permanent neuronal damage with the risk of aftereffects and permanent incapacity. By relying on advanced methods in molecular biology associated with clinical and imaging assessment (magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine), we have conducted research that is intended to understand the intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms that lead to an increase of pro-inflammatory substances such as cytokines, chemokines, the production of autoantibodies, complement system activation, proliferation / maturation of autoreactive lymphocytes T and B, microglial activation and the alteration of the blood-brain barrier. Besides, we have conducted research for the identification of specific biomarkers for each disease which may assist in the establishment of better diagnosis/prognosis and in experimental animal models for the study of physiopathology and innovative therapeutic interventions.
