Susan Bookheimer




Member of the UCLA faculty since 1993. "My research uses functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI) to understand the cortical organization of language and memory systems including emergent systems such as social communication and emotion. Clinical applications of my work includes pre-surgical mapping of critical functions; understanding developmental disorders of language such as autism and ADHD; and early detection of functional brain abnormalities in individuals at-risk for Alzheimer's disease."
