Dr James Pang
Dr Kevin Aquino
Dr Trang Cao
Dr Jeggan Tiego
Jeggan completed postgraduate degrees in behavioural neuroscience and psychology before working in clinical neurophysiology for several years. He uses different statistical modelling techniques to link between genetics, brain function, cognition, and symptoms of psychopathology.
Sam is working on the Monash Brain and Behaviour Project, investigating how individual differences might influence susceptibility to mental illness, and to understand the effect of brain function and genetics.
James completed his Bachelor of Science (Honours) at Monash University before joining the Neural Systems and Behaviour Lab. He is currently working on the Monash Brain and Behaviour Project, focusing on examining the link between genes, brain function, and psychopathology.
Dr Chao Suo
As a research fellow, he works on investigating intervention-induced brain changes utilising multiple-modalities of neuroimaging methods (including structural MRI, functional MRI and MR spectroscopy).
Alex's research focuses on different aspects of brain ageing and cortical organization. He seeks to uncover how accelerated brain ageing is associated with psychiatric disorders and to understand the genetic underpinnings of cortical function.
