  • Danielle D. DeSouza

    Danielle D. DeSouza

    Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences

    BioMy research focuses on the use of neuroimaging methods to understand brain abnormalities and treatment-related plasticity in individuals with chronic pain disorders. Current projects focus on basic mechanisms and biomarkers underlying chronic daily headache subtypes using multimodal imaging and deep phenotyping and the effects of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation on analgesia and hypnotic analgesia.

    Teaching roles include Co-director for the Neuroscience, Behavior, and Cognition (NBC) Scholarly Concentration, part of a required structured program of study in the medical student curriculum that promotes in depth learning and scholarship, and Instructor for ANES 215, a required course in the Department of Anesthesia for medical students enrolled in the NBC Scholarly Concentration.
