Laura Roberts, MD, MA
Katharine Dexter McCormick and Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor in the School of Medicine and Professor, by courtesy, of Psychology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Roberts has performed numerous empirical studies of contemporary ethics issues in medicine and health policy and has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Energy, the National Alliance of Schizophrenia and Depression, the Arnold P. Gold Foundation, and other private and public foundations.
Allyson Rosen, Ph.D.
Clinical Associate Professor (Affiliated) [Vapahcs], Psych/Public Mental Health & Population Sciences
Bio RESEARCH FOCUS
Translational cognitive neuroscience of aging and dementia. Neuroethics.
Dr. Rosen is board certified in clinical neuropsychology with a geriatric focus. She completed college at Brown University, a clinical psychology Ph.D. from Case Western Reserve University, clinical neuropsychology internship at the Long Island Jewish Hospital in New York, and clinical neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Rosen completed specialty research fellowship training at the National Institute on Aging (Intramural Research Training Award) and Stanford (NRSA F32, K01) in functional imaging and noninvasive brain stimulation with support from NIA.
CLINICAL AND RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
Dr. Rosen is Director of Dementia Education at the Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center at the Palo Alto VAHCS. She is also a neuropsychologist and part of the consensus clinical group and education core at the Stanford’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (NIA). Dr. Rosen’s funded research has focused on applying cognitive neuroscience of aging to improve clinical practice in older adults by using cognitive measures, brain imaging, and noninvasive brain stimulation such as TMS. Studies include using fMRI as an outcome measure for cognitive training, studying how to improve the accuracy of transcranial magnetic stimulation targeting with and without image guidance, and using structural MRI to avoid postoperative cognitive decline and improve outcome from carotid vascular procedures. She has a longstanding commitment to neuroethics and leads a feature in the Journal of Alzheimer Disease that focuses on ethical issues in new and emerging AD applications.

Professional-NX, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Bio Maryam Rostami is a professional data analyst in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at Stanford university, currently working in the area of neuroethics and public health. She got a PhD in cognitive neuroscience and neuroimaging from Tohoku university/Japan that folloed by two years of research in the same area at Stanford university.
Affiliate, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Bio Katy graduated from the College of Charleston with a BS in Biology in 2007. Since graduation, she has spent time traveling the world and gaining research experience by serving as a coordinator on a multitude of studies and as the lab manager for the Locomotion Energetics and Assessment Laboratory at the Medical University of South Carolina for the past 7 years. Preferring mountains over beaches, Katy moved to the Stanford area and joined the Brain Stimulation Laboratory team as a Clinical Research Coordinator in September 2016. She is incredibly excited and grateful for the opportunity to further develop her skills and understanding of brain stimulation as well as learning about the field of hypnosis. Katy’s aspirations are to be accepted into a Clinical Psychology PhD program.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Information transfer at synapses mediates information processing in brain, and is impaired in many brain diseases. Thomas Südhof is interested in how synapses are formed, how presynaptic terminals release neurotransmitters at synapses, and how synapses become dysfunctional in diseases such as autism or Alzheimer's disease. To address these questions, Südhof's laboratory employs approaches ranging from biophysical studies to the electrophysiological and behavioral analyses of mutant mice.
