Daniel Talmasov, MD
New York University
Daniel Talmasov’s career is deeply invested in the bridging the distinct but interrelated disciplines of neurology and psychiatry. He completed residency training in psychiatry at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Residency Training Program in 2019, and then entered a second residency in neurology at the New York University School of Medicine that same year.
Daniel’s leading research interest over the course of residency training has been in lesional neuropsychiatry – the study of how focal brain lesions, e.g. stroke, disrupt brain networks critical to supporting normal cognition and behavior, resulting in behavioral, cognitive, or affective syndromes that share features with “primary” or idiopathic psychiatric disorders. Daniel hopes that studying lesional neuropsychiatric syndromes will not only identify brain circuits implicated in secondary psychiatric syndromes, but also help generate testable circuit-level hypotheses relevant to the pathophysiology of primary psychiatric disorders.
