    Stephanie Christina Balters

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsStephanie Balters, Ph.D. is a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research (CIBSR) at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Balters' research focus lies on unobtrusive human physiology sensing and subtle interventions in critical human-machine interactions. She is working on developing robust fNIRS systems that allow for interface-embedded in situ neurofeedback to enhance human task performance. Recently, her research focus has extended to elucidating the neural inter-brain signatures of human-human interaction with fNIRS hyperscanning (i.e., concurrent scanning of two brains).

  • Jean Marie Batail

    Jean Marie Batail

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    BioI am a MD/PhD postdoctoral scholar from Rennes in France. Before arriving in Stanford, I worked in both clinical and research fields. I leaded a unit specialized in neuropsychiatric treatment resistant disorders (mainly depression, Parkinson Disease with psychiatric comorbidities and obsessive-compulsive disorder) with two residents. In this unit, I used and coordinated neuromodulations techniques such as repetititive Trancranial Magnetic Stimulation, Electroconvulsive therapy, and Deep Brain Stimulation. In the research part of my activity, my work focused on biomarkers of poor outcome of depressive disorder using clinical/neuropsychological/brain imaging assessments. In addition, I conducted research on neurofeedback applied to depression. Apart to be involved in the national coordination of this topic for psychiatric diseases (Neurofeedback section of French Association of Biological Psychiatry and Neuropsychopharmacology https://www.afpbn.org/sections/next/), I was actively involved in the development of a new generation of brain-computer interface therapies based on joint bimodal EEG-fMRI neurofeedback. In this project, I leaded the clinical research applying this new technology to depression. I am very interested in working on biomarkers of neuropsychiatric disorders and the development of personalized-targeting neuromodulation techniques.

  • Molly Bowdring

    Molly Bowdring

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychosocial

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am interested in elucidating factors that contribute to initiation, maintenance, and exacerbation of substance use, as well as problematic substance use consequences. To date, I have largely focused on investigating psychosocial aspects of social drinking experiences via naturalistic, experimental, and meta-analytic studies.

    I additionally seek to use scholarly advocacy to enhance diversity, equity, and inclusion within clinical and academic spaces.

  • Edith Brignoni Perez

    Edith Brignoni Perez

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    BioEdith Brignoni Pérez completed her Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Georgetown University in June 2019. Her doctoral work focused on investigating the neurofunctional bases of reading in bilingual-biliterate children and adults, under the mentorship of Dr. Guinevere F. Eden at the Center for the Study of Learning. Edith used functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate whether bilinguals rely on a different functional brain system to read words in English compared (1) to monolinguals and (2) to reading words in Spanish.

    She joined the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics research unit in July 2019 as a postdoctoral fellow co-advised by Drs. Katherine E. Travis (Pediatrics), Heidi M. Feldman (Pediatrics), and Ian Gotlib (Psychology). Some of Edith’s current research interests include how the brain’s white matter microstructure and developmental outcomes relate to one another, particularly in infants born prematurely. She is also interested in changes to brain structure and function following early intervention of language exposure, and long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes relationship with early-life stress.

  • Katie Cederberg

    Katie Cederberg

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    BioDr. Cederberg's primary research interests focus on studying the efficacy and effectiveness of exercise for managing symptoms of restless legs syndrome (RLS) and co-occurring conditions (e.g., periodic limb movements, insomnia). She is currently an NHLBI T32 funded Postdoctoral Scholar in the Mignot Lab, where she she devotes her time to conducting research aimed at better understanding the relationship among genetics, proteomics, and the presence of and severity of symptoms related to RLS. Her current research is interested in patient's personal experiences with exercise and RLS as well as the relationship between exercise and proteomic biomarkers of RLS. She received her PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in December 2020, wherein her dissertation utilized a series of methodological approaches to comprehensively examine the relationship between physical activity and RLS in adults with MS. She plans to utilize her experience and training to develop a line of research for informing exercise prescription parameters specifically for managing symptoms of RLS.

  • Hyesang Chang

    Hyesang Chang

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Psychiatry

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research aims to understand neural representations and brain networks that support learning and academic achievement across development to bridge the gaps between cognitive and developmental science, neuroscience, and education. I am interested in the interplay between multiple cognitive and affective systems, and neuroplasticity of these systems that give rise to individual differences in how children acquire knowledge and skills in domains important for academic and professional success.
