Lucas Trambaiolli, MSc, PhD
Research Fellow, Laboratory of Functional Neuroanatomy
- Research Fellow in Psychiatry
Lucas Trambaiolli, MSc, PhD, has a background in biomedical engineering and neuroscience. His doctoral work combined multimodal neuroimaging, real-time signal processing, and machine learning to identify functional connectivity patterns associated with emotion regulation. He targeted these patterns to develop new brain-computer interfaces and neurofeedback systems. During his graduate research, Dr. Trambaiolli received funding from the Sao Paulo Research Foundation in Brazil. In 2017, he was a visiting researcher at the Multimedia/Multimodal Signal Analysis and Enhancement (MuSAE) Lab at the University of Quebec.
At McLean, he combines nonhuman primate neuroanatomy and human neuroimaging to identify brain circuits affected in mood and anxiety disorders. This translational approach supports the discovery of objective biomarkers and the development of new therapies using real-time neuroimaging. He received the NIH Outstanding Scholars in Neuroscience Award in 2020.
