NNDC Neuromodulation Task Group Co-Chair, Dr. Shan Siddiqi, M.D. Awarded the 2022 Klerman Prize
NNDC Neuromodulation Task Group Co-Chair, Dr. Shan Siddiqi, M.D., Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, received the Klerman Prize for Exceptional Clinical Research by the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation.
Dr. Siddiqi’s research is focused on causal mapping of human brain function and dysfunction. Using techniques such as functional connectivity MRI, Dr. Siddiqi maps brain circuits to link brain lesions and brain stimulation sites that can modify different psychiatric symptoms. These circuits can then be targeted with treatments such as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and deep brain stimulation (DBS) to alleviate symptoms in psychiatric disorders.
