Biography :

Patrick Fisher is a neuroscientist interested in identifying neurobiological mechanisms that shape inter-individual variability in human behavior. He uses fMRI to establish task-based and resting-state features of distributed brain function and connectivity. Complementary, He uses PET to establish features of behaviorally relevant neurotransmission, primarily serotonin receptor and transporter distribution.

Recently, He has oriented his research toward establishing neural features associated with consciousness. he is leading a multimodal PET/fMRI study of brain mechanisms associated with the serotonin psychedelic psilocybin, to better understand how this promising and broadly applicable therapeutic affects the brain. He is collaborating with neurologists at Rigshospitalet including a project evaluating fMRI measures in coma patients to identify neural markers of conscious awareness and recovery.
