Ashkan Alvand

Dr. Alvand is a PhD graduate from the school of Psychology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Ashkan's research utilized Advanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques and network science approaches to investigate brain mechanisms in children diagnosed with Auditory Processing Disorder (APD). His findings were published in top-tier journals in neuroscience and enriched the literature, furthering our understanding and contributing to the development of diagnostic and treatment tools for APD.

Brain structural and functional organization in children with APD

Can brain imaging tell us about how the brain differs in children with APD compared to children without hearing complaints? Or could it show us where this anomaly happens in their brain? Researchers at the School of Psychology within the University of Auckland answer this question.
