Associate Professor, Physical Therapy

Dr. Virji-Babul is a Neuroscientist and a physical therapist. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Physical Therapy, UBC. Her laboratory is based at the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health. Her research addresses fundamental aspects of brain-behavior relationships in typical and atypical development. Over the past decade, she has adopted a cognitive neuroscience framework using a variety of neuroimaging tools, from magnetoencephalography (MEG) and high-density electroencephalography (EEG), to diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), to unravel and examine the structural and functional brain networks underlying perception and action. This work has resulted in over 70 peer-reviewed papers in the area of neuroimaging, brain dynamics and perceptual-motor function in typical development, atypical development and in adolescents with concussion/mild traumatic brain injury.
