Jamshid Faraji



Jamshid earned his Ph.D. (Neuroscience) at the University of Lethbridge, the Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience (CCBN) under the supervision of Dr. Robert Sutherland and Dr. Gerlinde Metz. His thesis was focused on post-stroke recovery. Jamshid started his Post-doctoral fellowship at the Metz Laboratory in September 2009. He is working on cortical strokes and their structural and functional consequences.
