Dr. Mukesh Dhamala is currently a faculty member in the department of
physics and neuroscience institute at Georgia State University (GSU) in
Atlanta, USA. He teaches physics and neuroimaging courses, and directs
research in neuroscience and neurophysics. His current research explores
the neural mechanisms for human decision-making, human epilepsy, brain
restoration after stroke and rehabilitative treatments, and neuronal
network oscillations and synchronization. His research aims to bring
physics and brain science discoveries into clinical applications to
improve human health. He is a leading expert in brain network activity
analysis methods, such as spectral Granger causality for brain imaging
and electrophysiological data. He received a US NSF CAREER award for
his research program in 2010. He joined Georgia State University (GSU)
in the fall of 2007. Prior to joining GSU, he held a research assistant
scientist position in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the
University of Florida from 2004 to 2007. Before that, he worked as a
postdoctoral researcher at several institutions including Georgia
Institute of Technology, Emory University and Florida Atlantic
University. Dr. Dhamala received his PhD in theoretical physics from the
University of Kansas, USA in 2000.

Prof. Alessandra Pacini is currently in the Department of Experimental and Clinical Medicine – Anatomy Section at the University of Florence, Italy. Graduated in Biological Sciences at the University of Florence in 1993, she gained her Specialization in Biochemistry and Clinical Chemistry in 1997 and her PhD in Pediatric Sciences at the University of Firenze in 2001. Current research targets on the study of the blood brain barrier and its alterations in the presence of toxic substances in in vitro systems. Research also focuses on the use of focused ultrasound for the blood brain barrier permeability regulation in order to deliver drugs inside the central nervous system.
