Co-Lead of Neuroimaging
Aaron J. Newman is a scientist, educator, and author. His research examines relationships between brain activity and thought using a variety of neuroimaging tools. He directs the NeuroCognitive Imaging Lab (NCIL), where he trains students in applied cognitive neuroscience research and studies how experience affects the brain in contexts such as learning, reading, and stroke recovery. Another facet of his work is training scientists at all levels to be more creative and critical thinkers, to understand entrepreneurship, and to find and solve important problems within and beyond academia.
