Biography

Professional Background

Brad Mahon is a cognitive neuroscientist who studies visual object categorization and language function. His research uses functional and structural MRI and behavioral analysis to study disruption and recovery of neural systems after brain damage. The types of patients studied in his research include individuals with brain tumors and stroke patients. Brad Mahon received his PhD from Harvard University (2009) where he studied the organization of object knowledge in the brains of congenitally blind humans. Dr. Mahon's research is funded by grants from the National Institute of Health and the National Science Foundation. Additional information about Dr. Mahon's research, and information for patients interested in participating in research studies, can be found at: http://caoslab.bcs.rochester.edu/
