Dr Nahian Chowdhury is a postdoctoral research fellow. Dr Chowdhury’s work involves the use of non-invasive brain stimulation to understand the neural mechanisms for pain and cognitive control. Specifically, he is interested in how cognitive control mediates the neural and subjective response to pain. Dr Chowdhury is passionate about translating research into clinical practice, with the aim of finding brain biomarkers for cognitive control and pain that will be used diagnostically or be used as targets for therapies such as repetitive brain stimulation.
