John Desmond, PhD
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Topic is Cerebellar Contributions to Cognition: Insights from the Phonological Loop
Dr. John Desmond is a Professor of Neurology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His research focuses broadly on neuroimaging and, more recently, transcranial magnetic stimulation methods to investigate neural correlates of behavior. Some specific areas of interest are: The contributions of the cerebellum, and cerebro-cerebellar circuits, to cognition. The effects of long-term alcohol consumption on cognition, functional brain activation, brain structure, and brain connectivity. Aging effects on awareness and cerebro-cerebellar function. Integration of transcranial magnetic stimulation with functional MRI to assess brain connectivity.
Lunch Available at 11:45am lecture from 12:00 to 1:00 pm
