Welcome Alessandra and Michael!

December 27, 2018

The Napadow Lab welcomed two new post docs this past fall! Alessandra Anzolin comes to us from Sapienza University of Rome where she obtained her PhD in Bioengineering, focusing on EEG signals to study how stroke and neurofeedback treatment impact cognitive functions. During the summer of 2018, Alessandra also worked as a research fellow at a Neuroelectrical Imaging and BCI lab within Fondazione Santa Lucio Hospital (Rome, Italy). In the Napadow Lab, she brings her expertise to the EEG/fNIRS Hyperscanning project to explore the neural correlates of the Patient-Clinician relationship...

Vitaly presenting recent Napadow Lab findings from acupuncture and neuroimaging research!

February 9, 2018

Vitaly presented as the keynote speaker at the 2017 Association for Professional Acupuncture (APA) Annual Meeting. In this talk, Vitaly discusses in depth the research projects involving topics such as electroacupuncture, carpal tunnel syndrome, therapeutic aliance (impact of the relationship between a patient and clinician), and hyperscanning. Given the nature of the audience, this talk is great for anyone interested in this research, but may be lacking a strong background in imaging modalities...

Vitaly discussing forms of Neuromodulation, recorded at PAINWeek 2016

November 3, 2017

Dr. Napadow gives his expert opinion on how different forms of neuromodulation fit into treatment schemes, speficially more practical and less invasive applications that can be implemented by patients themselves. This video provides an brief overview of how transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS) works and how he views its potential integration into patient care. ...
