Integrating Neuroimaging Findings in Clinical Neuropsychological Assessment with David H. Zald, PhD
Tuesday, March 8, 2022, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
Registration is required
Payment In Full In Advance Only
1.5 CEs available.
Neuroimaging has remarkably increased our understanding of neuropsychological functions and has the potential to substantially inform the clinical practice of neuropsychological assessment. This talk will provide an introduction to the different types of structural and functional information that can be gained with modern MRI techniques, and how they may help in understanding the nature of observed neuropsychological deficits and the prediction of clinical outcomes.
Attendees will be able to:
• Describe the different types of common MRI sequences used to assess damage and dysfunction to grey and white matter structures.
• Describe how MRI studies of functional activations, functional connectivity and regional cerebral blood flow inform our understanding of neuropsychological deficits.
• Explain how structural and functional imaging can inform the prediction of neuropsychological outcomes.
David H. Zald, Ph.D. is the Director of the Center for Advanced Human Brain Imaging Research at Rutgers University and the Henry Rutgers Professor of Psychiatry at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Zald combines a background in clinical neuropsychology with over a quarter of century of research using neuroimaging to understand the functions of limbic and paralimbic regions and the manner in which dysfunction of these regions contributes to psychopathology. While on faculty at Vanderbilt University, he taught graduate courses in neuropsychological assessment, and served as director of the undergraduate neuroscience major and associate director of the Vanderbilt Brain Institute. He has published over 160 peer reviewed papers, served as a section editor of the journal Neuropsychologia, and is a fellow of both the Association for Psychological Science and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
