Biography

Susan Whitfield-Gabrieli interested in how analyses of brain imaging data can shed light on the neural mechanisms subserving normal cognition and how disturbances of those mechanisms impair cognition in neurological and psychiatric diseases. Research interests include: 1) psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression; 2) age-related disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment (MCI); and 3) developmental disorders such as dyslexia. Research focuses on the development of quantitative methods to analyze data from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), and event related potential (ERP). Susan Whitefield-Gabrieli particularly interested using these multimodal imaging techniques to investigate functional and anatomical connectivity as well as exploring novel approaches to multimodal integration.
