Virtual Seminar – Wei Gao, PhD – Topic: The Neurophysiological Mechanisms Underlying Normal/Abnormal Human Brain Development and Adult Brain Functioning

April 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Wei Gao, PhD
Cedars Sinai

 

About the Speaker: Dr. Wei Gao was trained at the School of Medicine at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Gao was on the faculty at UNC-Chapel Hill before he came to Cedars-Sinai. His research is in the area of early brain development and adult brain functioning using advanced imaging techniques. In infant studies, Gao’s lab is currently interested in functional connectivity investigation of normal and abnormal brain growth trajectories for early identification of risks and intervention. In adult studies, they are interested in delineating the task-related dynamic reorganization of the brain under both normal and pathological conditions. Gao’s research is supported by multiple NIH-funded projects and the Foundation of Hope for Research and Treatment of Mental Illness.
