Research Grand Rounds: Silent but not to be neglected: The underestimated effects of injury to the right cerebral hemisphere

Date Fri, Apr 3
Time 12: 00 PM - 1: 00 PM
Location Zoom

This month's Research Grand Rounds features Anna Greenwald, PhD. She will discuss "Silent but not to be neglected: The underestimated effects of injury to the right cerebral hemisphere".

Dr. Greenwald is Assistant Professor of Neurology, a member of the Center for Brain Plasticity and Recovery at Georgetown University and was a recent GHUCCTS KL2 scholar. She leads her Center’s NIH-supported project on Cognition and Emotion after Stroke and is a co-investigator in the multi-institutional Pediatric Stroke project.   Dr. Greenwald uses behavioral and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods to investigate human perception, attention, and emotion, their neural basis, and their impairment in neurological disorders. The long-term goal of her research is to develop novel tools for assessing and treating these impairments.

This discipline-spanning, clinical and translational research talk will share her important work advancing our understanding of the clinically-important but understudied impacts of right brain injury.

Research Grand Rounds are sponsored by the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) and MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI) to bring together our diverse clinical and research communities to share impactful new research that spans disciplines and stages of translation to improve individual and community health.
