Dr. Siddiqi's research is focused on developing better methods for individualizing these neuromodulatory treatments based on functional MRI (fMRI) and clinical phenomenology. During residency, he was involved in several projects to investigate predictors of response to brain stimulation based on both clinical factors and computational analysis of brain imaging data. This culminated in a randomized-controlled trial of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) targeted with individualized brain network mapping for depression associated with traumatic brain injury. He also started a group called the Midnight Modulation Club, which studied causal relationships in the brain by stimulating different brain targets and mapping the immediate effects of that stimulation.
Learn More About the Foundation
The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is a global nonprofit organization focused on improving the understanding, prevention and treatment of psychiatric and mental illnesses.
Beginning in 1987, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation was providing seed money to neuroscientists to invest in “out of the box” research that the government and other sources were unwilling to fund. Today, Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is still the leading, private philanthropy in the world in this space.
Meet the people who make up the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation. Our staff of experts, passionate Board of Directors, and Scientific Council which includes Nobel prize winners and chairs of psychiatric departments around the world.
We take our responsibility to our donors seriously and believe that our financial operations must be transparent. We're proud to say that 100% of your contribution for research is invested directly in research grants.
