“The Heterogeneity Problem: Considerations and approaches for parsing the variance in cognitive neuroscience and psychiatric research”
Background: Dr. Damien Fair is the Director of the Fair Neuroimaging Lab at Oregon Health & Science University. He is an Associate Professor of Behavioral Neuroscience & Psychiatry, and an Associate Scientist in the Advanced Imaging Research Center. He is Principal Investigator of the Typical & Atypical Brain Development project, and Co-Principal Investigator of the Longitudinal Imaging Study of ADHD Brain Development project. His research interests focus on Cognitive Brain Development, ADHD, Autism, and Neuroimaging. The Fair Neuroimaging Lab focuses on mechanisms and principles that underlie the developing brain. The majority of their work uses functional MRI and resting state functional connectivity MRI to assess typical and atypical populations. They also focus on 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). Dr. Fair obtained his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, under Dr. Bradley Schlaggar and Dr. Steven Petersen (Advisors).
