DR. Hesheng Liu
Dr. Hesheng Liu, is an Associate Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School and Associate Professor in Neuroscience, Massachusetts General Hospital. He received his Ph.D. degree and B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Tsinghua University.

Hesheng’s research focuses on individual differences in brain function. The research topics include: Individual Differences, Lateralization, Surgical Planning, Epilepsy, Schizophrenia, OCD, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Resting-state fMRI, EEG/MEG, ECoG, TMS, DBS.

Hesheng studies functional network structure at the level of the individual and aims to understand the functional organization that differs in individuals with neurological and psychiatric illnesses. Obtaining a precise map of the individual’s system-level brain organization has tremendous clinical value and is one of the “holy grails” in brain imaging. Over the past years, he has been developing a platform to integrate information from different neuroimaging modalities to improve the accuracy of subject-level functional mapping. He now aims to translate these cutting-edge imaging technologies to the clinical arena by establishing tools that can guide surgical intervention for epilepsy and tumor patients. His work has also yielded a number of novel methods to study brain disorders including schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression.
