Kevin J. Black

I am a neuropsychiatrist who also completed a movement disorders fellowship at Washington University. My research is primarily focused on neuroimaging and dopamine, especially in people with Tourette syndrome and Parkinson disease. I have also developed methods for structural imaging volumetry, analysis of brain images in nonhuman species, pharmacological fMRI (phMRI), and statistical analysis of anatomy-function relationships in deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Paolo Brambilla

Paolo Brambilla is medical doctor, specialist in psychiatry, PhD in neuroscience. He has been research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh and at the University of Texas at San Antonio and adjunct Assist. Prof. of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina. Since 2004 Dr. Brambilla is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Udine, Italy. He co-authored more than 140 scientific peer-reviewed papers. His current lifetime h-index is 35.

Jon Brock

I was awarded my PhD in Psychology from Warwick University in 2003. My PhD topic was language and memory in Williams syndrome. I then completed a short post-doc at Bristol Uni investigating similar issues in Down syndrome, followed by a post-doc at Oxford investigating eye-movements in autism. Since 2007 I have been a research fellow at Macquarie University. My current research uses magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate the neural basis of language and auditory processing in autism.

Vince Calhoun

Dr. Calhoun is currently Executive Science Officer at the Mind Research Network and Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of New Mexico. He is the author of over 250 full journal articles and over 350 conference proceedings. His focus is the development of data driven approaches for the analysis of brain imaging data, data fusion of multi-modal imaging and genetics data, and the identification of biomarkers for disease.

Sandra Morais Cardoso

Sandra Morais Cardoso is an Assistant Professor at Faculty of Medicine and is the leader of the group of Molecular Mechanisms of Disease at the Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology of the University of Coimbra, Portugal. Since 2006, she started her independent research and found that mitochondrial impairment causes the loss of microtubule function, culminating in microtubule depolymerization that enhances protein aggregation, via autophagic-lysosomal pathway alteration.

Francisco Xavier Castellanos

F. Xavier Castellanos, MD, is director of the Center for Neurodevelopmental Disorders at the NYU Child Study Center. He is also the Brooke and Daniel Neidich Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and professor of Radiology and of Physiology and Neuroscience at the NYU School of Medicine.
