About Marc W. Haut
Dr. Haut utilizes a process/hypothesis testing approach for clinical neuropsychological evaluations with a wide a range of neurological, neurosurgical, and medical patients. He also provides cognitive rehabilitation for patients with neurological disease. He is responsible for the pre and post-operative evaluations for the deep brain stimulation program for Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. He has a joint clinical appointment in the Department of Neurology, and a research appointment in the Department of Radiology and works in the WVU Center for Advanced Imaging. His research interests include structural and functional imaging to study neuroplasticity.
My primary research interests are in the study of human memory, episodic and working memory. Structural (MRI Volumetrics and Diffusion Tensor Imaging) and functional neuroimaging (PET activation and fMRI) are used to study both normal and clinical populations with a particular focus on the effects of age and of toxins on human memory, brain structure, and function.
Example of a Fractional Anisotropy map of the human brain obtained from Diffusion Tensor Imaging to study white matter disease in women who have received chemotherapy for breast cancer.
Age-related Changes in Brain Structure and Function
We are using MRI techniques (fMRI, Volumetrics and Diffusion Tensor Imaging) to study how the brain changes with age as a function of intelligence and cognitive reserve.
Example of MRI Volumetrics of the prefrontal grey matter in a young healthy subject.
Structural and Functional Changes to the Brain After Toxic Exposure
We are completing an R01 in collaboration with Dr. Lisa Morrow at the University of Pittsburgh where we used MRI Volumetrics, PET activation, and Neuropsychological Testing to study the effects of long-term exposure to solvents on brain structure and function.
Example of MRI volumetrics of the corpus callosum in the study of solvent exposure
Example of brain activation during a working memory task in individuals with a history of solvent exposure
In collaboration with Dr. Jame Abraham we are also studying the effects of chemotherapy for breast cancer on brain white matter.
Example of a fractional anisotropy map with an ROI applied to the genu of the corpus callosum in study of women with breast cancer
Brain Structure and Function Related to Memory Processes
We have ongoing studies to examine the brain structures involved with memory in healthy individuals as well as patients with epilepsy.
Example of ROIs to study memory encoding in the hippocampus
