Dr Emmanuel Stamatakis completed his Ph.D. at the University of Dundee, Scotland where he developed image processing algorithms for the interpretation of medical images.
He started working in the area of neuroimaging at the Department of Psychology, Stirling University, where he investigated the automated detection of perfusion deficits on SPECT scans of head injured and stroke patients.
He then moved to the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge in 2001 to work on a variety of neuroimaging projects in the context of establishing the neuronal substrate of language function utilising multimodal neuroimaging techniques (structural fMRI, fMRI, DTI, connectivity fMRI) working with both healthy volunteers and patients.
He started his current post (Stephen Erskine Fellow at Queens’ College, Cambridge) in March 2008. Emmanuel’s current research interests are in functional and structural connectivity analyses (both for task and resting state fMRI) as means to investigating organisation and reorganisation/plasticity in the human brain.
