    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurosurgery

    Bio Daniel A. N. Barbosa, M.D., is a Research Fellow working under the mentorship of Dr. Casey H. Halpern (Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery) and Dr. Jennifer McNab (Associate Professor of Radiology). He received his medical degree from the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro in 2018. During his clinical education, Dr. Barbosa followed several renowned neurosurgeons and neurologists, and had a large experience with neurological and psychiatric patients. He developed great interest for the investigations of neurosurgical techniques to improve brain function. The invaluable experiences with these patients shaped a great interest on the investigations of neurosurgical techniques to improve brain function. His clinical and academic training together with the research experience provided him with an excellent background in multiple biological disciplines including neurosurgery, neurology, psychiatry, and neuroimaging. He also had the opportunity of joining a team of neurosurgeons and clinical scientists in the largest clinical study on deep brain stimulation for morbid obesity to date. With Drs. Ricardo de Oliveira-Souza, Alessandra Gorgulho, and Antônio De Salles (UCLA Emeritus Professor of Neurosurgery), Dr. Barbosa has led a systematic review on the topic. He also worked on the development and the publishing of this study protocol as well as that of a clinical trial of a novel neurosurgical therapy for depression. During his graduate career, these clinical investigations generated several peer-reviewed publications, book chapters, and conference presentations.

    Now, his investigation is contributing to the ongoing first-in-human early feasibility trial of closed-loop neuromodulation of the nucleus accumbens for Loss of Control Eating. He is also working on the design of innovative, invasive clinical studies for conditions like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He is committed to investigate cutting-edge neuroimaging and neurophysiology modalities, including diffusion magnetic resonance imaging, as well as novel brain-clearing techniques to improve stereotactic targeting neuromodulation for pathological impulsivity, a pervasive symptom in a wide range of neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychiatry

    Bio I 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.
