Michelle Hampson PhD
Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Radiology
After completing an undergraduate degree in Computing Science at the University of Alberta, Dr. Hampson did her graduate work Boston University's Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, a department focused on computational neural network models of brain systems. She came to Yale as a postdoc to pursue her interests in human functional neuroimaging. During her postdoc, Dr. Hampson conducted some of the earliest studies of resting-state functional connectivity, validating the technique and relating resting-state functional connectivity measures to behavioral variables. She recently joined the Yale faculty and has begun using real-time fMRI neurofeedback to train people to control their brain activity patterns. She is interested in novel functional neuroimaging techniques and psychiatric applications of these techniques.
