Dr. Dosenbach is an Instructor in the Division of Pediatric Neurology in the Department of Neurology and sees patients as part of the Pediatric Neurorehabilitation Program at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Dr. Dosenbach will use multimodal MRI to study use-dependent neural plasticity following brain injury in children.
