Dr. Cherie Marvel received her PhD in Neuroscience from Georgetown University in Washington, DC in 2002. Her dissertation research examined cerebellar-related cognitive and motor deficits in schizophrenia. She completed her first post-doctoral fellowship in Clinical Neuroscience at the University of Iowa, where she furthered her training in cerebellar cognitive function in psychiatric disorders. She completed her second post-doctoral fellowship in Cognitive Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University, where she learned to use brain imaging methods (e.g., functional MRI) to examine cognition.
Now an Assistant Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Marvel’s research focuses on the cognitive functions of the cerebellum in healthy and clinical populations. In particular, she examines the way that the cerebellum supports the maintenance and manipulation of information that is temporarily held in mind (i.e., during working memory).
Dr. Marvel’s research involves brain imaging methods (e.g., fMRI) and brain stimulation techniques (e.g., Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) in order to examine brain function during working memory in healthy and clinical populations.
