Biographical Summary

Thushini Manuweera joined the Clinical Neuroimaging Research Core in July of 2018. She received her PhD in biomedical sciences from Rutgers, School of Graduate Studies. Dr. Manuweera’s dissertation research focused on investigating the brain network recruited when performing a visually demanding motor task with mirrored visual feedback (MVF) in healthy individuals. In addition, her research focused on understanding both functional and structural features of this MVF network associated with differences in lesion location in individuals with stroke. Dr. Manuweera is interested in investigating how neural networks relate to genetic traits and physiological impairments in alcoholics.
