Dr. Faranak Farzan is an Independent Scientist in the Temerty Centre for Therapeutic Brain Stimulation.
Areas of Research
Dr. Farzan's research focus is in neuroengineering with application in medical diagnosis and neurotherapeutics. Her work to date has focused on designing new experimental strategies for diagnosis, treatment and ultimately prevention of neuropsychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease. She is leading this work through multidisciplinary collaboration and combining basic electrophysiology, neuroimaging, neuromodulation, and behavioral training.
Dr. Farzan's work aims to address three important challenges for the implementation and adoption of neurotechnology in clinical and translational research: (1) Development of novel experimental strategies to safely and reliably assess neural processes in humans; (2) Identification of computational and data management strategies to facilitate discovery of biomarkers of brain health and impairments; and (3) Translation of this gained knowledge into clinical practice.
