Massoud Stephane

Massoud Stephane received the M.D. degree from Damascus University College of Medicine in 1983. He had residency training in Neurology at the Ecole de Medicine Pitie-Salpetriere, Paris, France, and in Psychiatry at Tufts University, Boston, MA, USA, and Yale University, New Haven, CT, USA. He also had a fellowship training in brain functional imaging at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA. He joined the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota in 1999 as an Assistant Professor and moved in 2013 to the Psychiatry Department at Oregon Health and Science University where he is currently an affiliate Associate Professor. He is currently about to join the Department of Psychiatry at Indiana University as an Associate Professor. His research is focused on understanding the neural mechanisms of hallucinations as well as cognitive and linguistic impairments associated with psychosis. For this goal, he employs methodologies based on the phenomenology of the disease, cognitive modeling and brain imaging with magnetoencephalography and fMRI.

Abnormal Neural Oscillations in Schizophrenia Assessed by Spectral Power Ratio of MEG During Word Processing
This study investigated spectral power of neural oscillations associated with word processing in schizophrenia. Magnetoencephalography (MEG) data were acquired from 12 schizophrenia patients and 10 healthy controls during a visual word processing task. Two spectral power ratio (SPR) feature sets:... Read more
