Yuta Katsumi, PhD is a cognitive/systems neuroscientist, an Instructor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School, and Associate Director of PET Imaging Operations in the MGH Frontotemporal Disorders Unit. Yuta earned his PhD in Psychology (Cognitive Neuroscience) from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and completed his postdoc at Northeastern University/MGH. His primary research interests concern multimodal neuroimaging of the brain’s intrinsic and task-related modulation of functional dynamics in patients with neurodegenerative disease as well as cognitively unimpaired older adults. Outside of work, Yuta loves playing videogames (e.g., open-world shooters, souls-like) and chasing his 4 year-old son, Luka.
