Director, Neural System Group

Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

Email: STRANG@mgh.harvard.edu

My research interests center around the interface between cognitive science, neuroscience and real-world applications. Current research employs non-invasive technologies to investigate neural correlates of performance and learning, particularly in mobile settings. I have focused on fMRI and near-infrared spectroscopy and imaging, as well as more limited work with EEG/ERPs. The Neural Systems Group is based at the Massachusetts General Hospital, along with the Athinoula A. MartinosBiomedical Imaging Center (formerly the MGH NMR Center).
