The fourth seminar of the semester was held at National Central University (NCU), therefore our partner, the students from NYMU, Taipei gave us a visit to watch the talk altogether. The seminar invited Dr. Yuan-Hwa Chou as the speaker who is an expert in the clinical field related to the neuroscience from Taipei Veterans
General Hospital.

In the beginning, Dr. Chou opened the talk by asking the students about why they joined neuroscience department, why they wanted to do brain imaging studies, and what is their specific aim of their studies.
Furthermore, he shared to us about his research in dopamine and its pathways into the brain. Based on his journey on that research, he shared us the comparison of using PET (Positron Emission Tomography),
SPECT (Single-photon emission computed tomography), and fMRI (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to
image our brain. In short, Dr. Chou advises the students if they wanted to have a brain imaging study, they had to have the specific and clear goal to achieve because of the high price of doing brain image studies.

Aside from dopamine, Dr. Chou also talked about his study to serotonin, addicting drug substances such as
methamphetamine, also charcoal poisoning in the suicide attempt. He mostly used PET or SPECT scan because of its ability to have more distinguished individual features rather than fMRI/MRI (though more expensive).
At the end of his talk, he mentioned the possibility of creating hybrid PET/MRI study to combine both
methods benefit.
