Translational Neuroimage, Neuromodulation, and Neurorehabilitation Lab

Principal Investigator

Shasha Li, MD, PhD

Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology, Harvard Medcial School
MGH/HST Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging
Massachusetts General Hospital

Director of the TN3 Lab. Dr. Shasha Li’s research focuses on the development of novel insights into the altered brain network in neurological diseases and investigating the neurophysiological correlation between neurological disorders and the mechanism of non-invasive brain stimulation in clinical applications. She has an interdisciplinary background in behavioral neuroscience and biomedical imaging. Her original contributions of major significance pertain to the field of neurorehabilitation and neuroimaging. In addition to her research and scholarly activities, she also dedicates to teaching and education. She is the Course Director of Intermediate Medical Mandarin at Harvard Medical School and Faculty Mentor of M.D./Ph.D candidates. Teaching and working with students is one of her biggest passions.

Lab Members

Jennifer Fiedler

Clinical Research Coordinator

Jenny Fiedler was a Clinical Research Coordinator for the TN3 Lab and AC Lab in the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Biology at the College of William & Mary in 2020. As an undergraduate, Jenny worked as a research assistant in an autobiographical memory lab, where she contributed to behavioral projects regarding the effects of doodling and mind wandering on short-term memory. She also completed an undergraduate honors thesis entitled The Self-Reference Effect: How Elaborative Processing and Associability Function Through Self-schemas. Jenny is interested in using neurostimulation such as TMS, neuroimaging techniques such as MEG, fMRI, and EEG, as well as behavioral approaches, to explore mechanisms of memory, learning, and attention. She is now a Cognitive Psychology PhD student in the department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC Chapel Hill.

Kaisu Lankinen, PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow

Kaisu Lankinen, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She received her MSc and PhD degrees in Biomedical Engineering from Aalto University, Finland.  In her doctoral work, she studied brain activity during movie viewing, measured with magnetoencephalography (MEG). After her PhD, she did her first Postdoctoral Fellowship in University of California, Berkeley, receiving further training in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), before joining Martinos Center in 2019. Her current work focuses on studying functions of auditory cortex and its interaction with other brain areas using high-resolution 7T fMRI and MEG. She is a joint research fellow with the TN3 Lab and AC Lab
