On Monday, Victor Ekuta gave a presentation on his research at PMC Didactics Meeting, a requirement for completing the PMC Minority Scholars in Aging Program. The presentation titled “Perturbing Brain States: A Look at Discrete Brain State Transitions Influenced by Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation” focused on his work these past few months completed with PMC neurologist Roy Hamilton, MD, and John Medaglia, PhD.
Ekuta is a student at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. He plans to pursue a residency in Neurology with a Fellowship in Cognitive/Behavioral Neurology in the future.
Mahdieh Hosseini, also a 2018 PMC Minority Scholar, completed her research project in August 2018. Her presentation on “Effect of HD-tCS on stimulating language recovery in patients with Primary Progressive Aphasia” was based on work completed over the summer in the lab of Dr. Roy Hamilton.
Hosseini is currently a student at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
