Leland L. Fleming, PhD
Leland is a postdoctoral researcher and NIH F99/K00 fellow in the Ressler Lab where he examines the enduring impact of stress-related disorders on brain structure and function. Leland earned his B.S. in Neuroscience from the Baylor University. He then went on to earn his Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences with focus in Neuroscience from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Leland's graduate work focused on using neuroimaging approaches to understand adult cortical plasticity following central vision loss in patients with macular degeneration. As a postdoctoral fellow, Leland continues to explore cortical plasticity of sensory systems in the context of development and stress-related disorders through a combination of human neuroimaging and bioinformatics approaches. His current work is supported through the NIH Diversity Specialized Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Advancement in Neuroscience (D-SPAN) Award.
