Joel H. Greenberg, Ph.D.

Joel H. Greenberg, Ph.D.

Research Professor of Neurology

Dr. Greenberg's research interests include mechanisms of cerebral blood flow control, metabolic and ionic alterations during cerebral ischemia, and techniques for neuroprotection following stroke. He is examining the hemodynamic and metabolic response to functional activation, and also studying mechanisms of functional reorganization following stroke. Dr. Greenberg is a Past-President of the Society of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism, and presently is on the editorial board of the Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism.
