Brice Passera, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Education History:
Ph.D., Cognitive Neuroscience, Universite Grenoble Alpes
M.Sc., Cognitive Science, Grenoble INP

Brice completed his PhD at Universite Grenoble Alpes with a focus on cognitive science, psychology and neuroscience. During his undergraduate and graduate years, he worked at the TMS platform of the Grenoble Institute of Neuroscience and Laboratoire de Psychology et NeuroCogntion. He conducted study on TMS methodology focusing on understanding TMS effect in non-motor areas with TMS-EEG in healthy controls. He also worked on Parkinson’s disease both in de novo patients and patients implanted with deep brain stimulation.

Personal Interests/Hobbies:
Brice loves to play golf, religiously follows Formula 1, loves to play board games and role playing games and hopes to discover as much of New England as possible.

Personal Goals:
Brice aims to pursue a career in academic research to explore and understand the healthy and pathological human brain through brain stimulation and to create reliable protocols able to improve both clinical and fundamental research.
