Dr Negin Hesam Shariati

BSc (Sep 2009) and MSc (Sep 2012) in Biomedical Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.

PhD (Feb 2018) in Medical Sciences, UNSW and Neuroscience Research Australia, Sydney, Australia.

School of Psychology

I am an early career postdoctoral researcher at the School of Psychology, UNSW and Neuroscience Research Australia.

I have been awarded a two-year postdoctoral fellowship from the Craig H Nielsen Foundation (USA) to develop and test a brain-computer interface neurofeedback intervention for people with neuropathic pain following spinal cord injury. This approach is a novel intervention in which individuals will be trained to gain control over their brain activity using neurofeedback in a way that results in pain reduction.
