Biography

Vitaly Napadow, Ph.D., LicAcVitaly Napadow, Ph.D., LicAc, pioneered the application of non-invasive neuroimaging techniques to better understand the brain circuitry underlying aversive perceptual states, and to better understand how therapies such as acupuncture ameliorate these states. OBSSR cofunded his R61 project, Optimization of brain-based mechanisms supporting psychosocial aspects of acupuncture therapy: A hyperscanning fMRI study, to understand patient/acupuncturist brain activity concordance in social mirror neuron regions during treatment, and relate this concordance with ratings of therapeutic alliance and analgesia. Napadow is associate professor at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and a secondary appointment in Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s Pain Management Center.
