Muriah Wheelock, PhD

Dr. Muriah Wheelock is currently an Instructor in the Department of Radiology at Washington University in St. Louis. She obtained her PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Alabama at Birmingham where she studied the behavioral and neural response to psychosocial stress using functional and structural connectivity analysis. During her postdoctoral training in Developmental Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis, she utilized graph theory to determine brain networks underlying healthy and disordered cognitive and behavioral development. Through additional postdoctoral training in Translational Sciences at Washington University, she gained experience with technology innovation. Her BRAIN Initiative project is focused on developing and disseminating network level analysis methods for connectome-wide association studies. These tools will be useful for connectome analysis across species, across the lifespan, and for understanding healthy and disordered cognition and behavior.
