This clinical research fellowship focuses on applications of non-invasive brain stimulation technologies to the management of neurological and psychiatric disorders. Dr. Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Director of the Berenson-Allen Center and internationally renowned researcher in this field, is his primary fellowship supervisor.
Dr. Burke has research interests spanning neurology, psychiatry and the expanding interface in between. He hopes to apply novel non-invasive brain stimulation and neuroimaging techniques to better understand and treat the complex disorders at this interface. In particular, he has strong interests in the fields of concussion, headache/pain, functional neurological disorders, placebo, cognitive impairment and neurorehabilitation.
