Approach

Dr. Prin X Amorapanth is a physician-scientist at Rusk Rehabilitation, NYU-Langone Medical Center. As an undergrad, he worked with noted emotion researcher Joseph LeDoux at NYU characterizing the neural circuits underlying conditioned fear, resulting in several publications, the most notable of which was a double dissociation of reflexive and active responses that was published Nature Neuroscience. As a combined MD/PhD student in the lab of cognitive neurologist Anjan Chatterjee at the University of Pennsylvania, he pursued training in the methodology of cognitive neuroscience, including functional imaging, neuropsychological testing, and lesion-symptom mapping, which he brought to bear on the question of how the brain represents visuospatial relationships and concepts. As a resident in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, he was exposed first hand to crucial clinical issues faced by patients with brain injury. This experience prompted him to further develop his expertise in the clinical diagnosis and management of TBI by returning to NYU to pursue a fellowship in brain injury medicine, where he has stayed on as faculty. His current research interests include identifying markers of visuospatial impairment following acquired brain injury as well as the use of non-invasive brain stimulation as both a therapeutic and investigational tool for maximizing rehabilitation and better understanding mechanisms of recovery following brain injury.
