Vinod Menon is the Rachel L. and Walter F. Nichols, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and a professor, by courtesy, of neurology at Stanford University. Vinod also serves as the director of Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory.
Menon’s laboratory uses advanced imaging and computational techniques to investigate the functional and structural architecture of cognitive networks in the human brain. His laboratory also investigates how disruptions in specific brain circuits impact behavior, cognition, emotion and learning in individuals with neurodevelopmental, psychiatric and neurological disorders. Menon’s research has led to major breakthroughs in our understanding of the architecture, function and development of these large-scale distributed human brain networks in both health and disease.
