Most recently he has developed new machine learning methods for rapidly and thoroughly evaluating perception and cognition. These new tests are not only useful for exploring normal nervous system function, but also for diagnosing disorders. The principles contributing to these successful diagnostics may also lead to effective neurotherapeutics, alone or when coupled with drug or device therapies.<br/><h3>​Biography</h3><p>Prior to joining the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis in 2004, Professor Barbour was a Research Associate at the Salk Institute for Biological Sciences.</p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/Barbour_research.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>314-935-7548<br/><a href="mailto:dbarbour@wustl.edu">dbarbour@wustl.edu</a><br/>Whitaker Hall, <g class="gr_ gr_5 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del" id="5" data-gr-id="5">Room</g> 200E</p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-wpbox" contenteditable="false"><div class="ms-rtestate-notify ms-rtestate-read 9f5920e4-26be-4045-a194-17796a7e733c" id="div_9f5920e4-26be-4045-a194-17796a7e733c" unselectable="on"></div><div id="vid_9f5920e4-26be-4045-a194-17796a7e733c" unselectable="on" style="display: none;"></div></div><ul style="margin-top: -10px;"><li> <a href="/news/Pages/Engineering-doctoral-student-wins-$10%2c000-for-efficient-hearing-test-.aspx" style="background-color: #ffffff;">Doctoral student wins $100,000 in healthcare technology competition​</a><br/></li><li>​<a href="/news/Pages/Research-may-lead-to-better-understanding-of-injured-spinal-cord-therapy.aspx" style="line-height: inherit; background-color: #ffffff;">Research may lead to better understanding of injured spinal cord therapy​​​​​</a></li></ul>
