Mark Bodner  博士Mark Bodner  博士


      Bodner, Mark Ph.D: received his B.S. from the University of Pittsburgh, and Ph.D. from the University of California Los Angeles.  After completion of postdoctoral training, he became a faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Science at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the Department of Physics at the University of California, Irvine.  Dr. Bodner is currently the President of Research of the MIND Research Institute.  He is also an adjunct professor in the department of mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh and the Department of Neurosurgery at the Johns Hopkins University.  He is a visiting professor at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, East China Normal University.  His Research interests include mathematical neuroscience to understand the patterns of activity in networks of neurons, working memory, and research to understand neuropathologies particularly epilepsy.
