NIAC Guest Lecture: Evan Gordon (University of Texas, Dallas)

July 20, 2018
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Radiology/NIL Conference Room (Medical Campus, 4525 Scott Ave, East Bldg 2311)

“Precision functional mapping to characterize the network structure of individual human brains” 

Background: Dr. Evan Gordon, Ph.D., is a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Texas – Dallas, Center for Vital Longevity, School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences. Dr. Gordon’s research focuses on using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to examine how brain networks are disrupted in Veterans with Traumatic Brain Injury.   Dr. Gordon’s current research is aimed at precisely describing brain networks of individual Veterans with and without TBI by collecting a larger amount of within-patient MRI data than has ever before been collected in a TBI study. Such precise descriptions will allow accurate identification of injured brain regions in individual patients, which in turn will help us understand how specific injuries lead to specific mental and behavioral problems.
