In this talk, Dr. Mishra will describe techniques that her lab has developed to measure neuro-cognition at scale using EEG, which allow for research embedded within community and clinical settings. These techniques provide insight into neural markers as targets of precision interventions, and allow tracking of brain plasticity alongside behavioral change. Dr. Mishra will describe how she has used these scalable techniques in studies across the lifespan in more than a dozen published papers in the past year, and how they are currently informing neuromodulation interventions, as well as closed-loop digital interventions. We have further integrated the neuro-cognitive measures with smartwatch and smartphone data to develop personalized models that inform N-of-1 behavioral intervention stratification in an ongoing trial for depression. Ultimately, the talk aims to provide a vision for scalable yet precise methodologies to inform and promote wellbeing within both local and global research settings.
Dr. Mishra is trained in the cognitive, computational and translational neurosciences. She is the founder and director of the Neural Engineering and Translational Labs (NEATLabs), and Associate Professor in the department of Psychiatry at UC San Diego. She is also the co-director of the UC Climate Change and Mental Health Initiative. Her lab develops scalable and personalized digital tech and neurotech that are accessible to our diverse communities and that can help address important issues in psychological health and wellbeing.
