Research Interests: Mariko con­ducts research in a Neu­rocog­ni­tion and Imag­ing Research Lab as a func­tional MRI spe­cial­ist. Her core research focuses on under­stand­ing how Post-traumatic Stress Dis­or­der (PTSD) and Trau­matic Brain Injury (TBI) affect neural cir­cuits of the brain. She is investigating effi­cacy of a cog­ni­tive reha­bil­i­ta­tion designed for OEF/OIF vet­er­ans with PTSD and TBI. The prin­ci­ple objec­tive is to improve the treat­ment and reha­bil­i­ta­tion of TBI sur­vivors as well as those diag­nosed with PTSD.
