Susan Bookheimer

Susan Bookheimer's lab uses imaging technologies, particularly functional and structural magnetic resonance images, PET scans, and intraoperative electrocortical stimulation mapping, to explore and define how disorders such as autism, Asperger’s, dyslexia, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s affect brain function and structure.
