Nasheed Jamal, M.D.
Nasheed received an S.B. in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and a Minor in French from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005. At MIT, she worked in Prof. Nancy Kanwisher's lab, using fMRI to investigate brain regions involved in social cognition. She entered the Georgetown University School of Medicine in August 2005 and subsequently joined CSL in February 2006. Under the mentorship of Dr. Eden, Nasheed conducted fMRI studies to determine the neural substrates underlying reading and arithmetic in bilinguals. Nasheed received her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2010. She completed an internship in Internal Medicine, followed by a Neurology residency at the University of California, Los Angeles.
