Professional Summary

Scott K. Holland, Ph.D. – is a Professor at University of Cincinnati, and Director of the Pediatric Brain Imaging Research Center at Children’s Hospital Research Foundation.  He also Directs the Communication Sciences Research Center at University of Cincinnati/Children’s Research Foundation.  A physicist by training, he received his B.S. degree (1980) in Physics from Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA. and M.S. (1982) and Ph.D. (1985) degrees in Applied Physics from Yale University.  His research currently focuses on advanced neuroimaging applications of MRI in pediatrics.  His major focus is on functional MRI of language, hearing and neuroplasticity following brain injury.  Currently he is directing two large scale studies aimed at developing specialized methods and collecting data on language developing in normally developing children from birth to adulthood.  His research in brain imaging extends to studies of congenital deafness, childhood apraxia of speech, dyslexia, bipolar disorder, epilepsy, stroke, TBI, hydrocephalus and other childhood neurologic disorders.
