JHU Webinar: How the Brain’s Motor System Works in Cerebellar Ataxia
Register by Thursday, August 6th please at https://jhjhm.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMrce-gqDIvHNODCCdnm-36JoGqsbyAvVsn
Dr. Cherie Marvel received her PhD in Neuroscience from Georgetown University in Washington, DC in 2002. Her dissertation research examined cerebellar-related cognitive and motor deficits in schizophrenia. She completed her first post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Iowa, where she furthered her training in cerebellar cognitive function in psychiatric disorders. She completed her second post-doctoral fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University, where she learned to use brain imaging methods (such as functional MRI) to examine cognition.
As an Associate Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Marvel’s research focuses on the interaction of cognition, emotion, and motor systems, with special emphasis on the cerebellum, in healthy and clinical populations.
Dr. Marvel’s research with clinical populations includes those with cerebellar ataxia, HIV, substance dependence, and Lyme disease. Her primary research methods include brain imaging (e.g., fMRI) and brain stimulation (e.g., Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) and experimental cognitive paradigms to study learning, memory, and behavior.
