altYelena Bodien, Ph.D.

Neuropsychology Fellow, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital

Dr. Yelena Bodien is a Neuropsychology Fellow at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. She completed her graduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where her research focused on using multimodal brain imaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation to probe the underlying neurobiology of schizophrenia. At Spaulding, her clinical duties involve the application of standardized and novel measures to the assessment and rehabilitation of patients with disorders of consciousness. Dr. Bodien's research activities include investigating the diagnostic and prognostic validity as well as augmentative communication utility of neuroimaging paradigms in patients with diagnosed with disorders of consciousness.
