Dr. Arciniega’s graduate research focused on investigating the time course of recovery and degree of rehabilitation from concussion using behavioral, neuropsychological, electroencephalogram (EEG), and resting state fMRI approaches. In his postdoctoral position at Harvard’s Psychiatry Neuroimaging Laboratory, Dr. Arciniega studied the cognitive and neural consequences that follow repetitive head impacts in former American football players using data from the DIAGNOSE-CTE Research Project using neuropsychological, neruopsychiatric, strucutural MRI, diffusion MRI, and resting state fMRI data.
