PhD, New York University
Research in my laboratory is focused on understanding the mechanisms of neural circuits in human brain underlying cognitive functions, such as, attention, emotion, and memory, in normal and patient populations. We use multi-modal neuroimaging of event related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for functional activity, structural MRI (mMRI) for morphometric differences, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) for connectivity among brain areas, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) for quantifying of endogenous neurochemistry. We are also involved in development of cognitive paradigms, new imaging acquisition, and analysis methods.

Summary of Research Studies:
Research in my laboratory is focused on understanding the mechanisms of neural circuits in human brain underlying cognitive functions in normal and patient populations, with a focus on voluntary control. We use multi-modal neuroimaging of event related functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for functional activity, structural MRI (mMRI) for morphometric differences, diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) for structural connectivity among brain areas, magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) for quantifying of endogenous neurochemistry, and event related potentials (ERP) for the time course of information transmission between brain networks.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Fan did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
