Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience in the Era of Big Data


Damien Fair, PA-C, PhD

Sponsored by the Hans Lowenbach Memorial Fund Dr. Fair is a Professor, Institute of Child Development; Professor, Department of Pediatrics, University of Minnesota Medical School; and the Redleaf Endowed Director, Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain. Dr. Fair graduated with his Ph.D in Neuroscience from the Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine in 2008. His research focuses on mechanisms and principles that underlie the developing brain. The majority of this work uses functional MRI and resting state functional connectivity MRI to assess typical and atypical populations. A second focus has become 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). He is exploring ways to better characterize individual patients with these psychopathologies to help guide future diagnostic, therapeutic and genetic studies. Link to join:
