Professor Steve Williams leads the Department of Neuroimaging within the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences (CNS). The CNS is a joint venture of the King's College London and the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust. His current research projects span neurodegeneration, epilepsy, stroke, pain, psychosis, affective disorders, developmental disorders and normal brain function, using a battery of neuroimaging techniques which include perfusion, diffusion, functional and structural imaging. Complementary research in imaging physics and analysis supports these applications.
