About the Speaker:

Catie Chang, PhD
Sally and Dave Hopkins Faculty Fellow
Assistant Professor of Computer Science
Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Vanderbilt University

Dr. Chang is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Biomedical Engineering, and is the Sally and Dave Hopkins Faculty Fellow at Vanderbilt University. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, NIH. Her research group, the Neuroimaging and Brain Dynamics Lab, develops engineering and computational methods for investigating brain activity.


This talk will present recent directions in analyzing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) signals, and discuss the use of such techniques in developing imaging-based biomarkers. 


The activity is designed to help the learner: 

1.    describe methods for studying fMRI signal dynamics
2.    discuss how physiological states such as wakefulness are reflected in human brain imaging signals
3.    describe recent advances in improving the precision of fMRI measurements

CME/CE credit for Psychiatry Grand Rounds is only available during the live feed time and for a brief time immediately following. The code for this week's session is displayed at the opening and closing of the meeting
