Seminar – Damien Fair, PA-C, PhD – Topic: Neural Imaging in Normal Development and Developmental Psychiatric Disorders

February 1, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Damien Fair, PA-C, PhD
Oregon Health & Science University

 

About the Speaker: My laboratory focuses on mechanisms and principles that underlie the developing brain. The majority of this work uses functional MRI and resting state functional connectivity MRI to assess typical and atypical populations. A second focus has become testing the feasibility of using various functional and structural MRI techniques in translational studies of developmental neuropsychiatric disorders (e.g., attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and autism). We are exploring ways to better characterize individual patients with these psychopathologies to help guide future diagnostic, therapeutic and genetic studies.
