Deborah Little has a PhD in Experimental Psychology with a specialization in human cognitive neuroscience from Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts.
Following her PhD, she completed a three-year post-doctoral fellowship in high field MR Imaging at the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois.
At present, she is an associate professor of Neurology & Rehabilitation, Anatomy & Cell Biology, Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences, and Psychology at the University of Illinois. The focus of the work in her laboratory is to identify clinically-relevant MRI markers of injury in persons with a history of traumatic brain injury with a focus on the use of diffusion tensor imaging. Her TBI research is primarily funded through grants from the Department of Defense and the Marshall Goldberg Traumatic Brain Injury Fund.
In addition to TBI research, she also has grant funding to validate MR technology as markers of disease and disease progression in Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, HIV, and Pediatric Bipolar Disorder.
