Tamara Hershey, PhD - Washington University
Dr. Tamara Hershey Ph.D. is Lab Chief of the highly collaborative Neuroimaging Labs (NIL), which is part of the division of Radiological Sciences within the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. She is also a member of the Psychiatry, Neurology, Radiology and Psychological and Brain Sciences Departments, and works in the fields of cognitive and clinical neuroscience, using a range of neuroimaging, pharmacological and cognitive techniques to understand the impact of metabolic and neurodegenerative conditions on the brain, particularly during development. She draws from numerous disciplines (neuroscience, radiology, endocrinology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology) to enhance the quality and clinical relevance of her research. Dr. Hershey believes that better imaging and understanding of the brain condition in RVCL patients will lead to better outcomes.
