Dr. Wilkes completed his bachelor’s degree in Neurobiological Sciences, as well as master’s and doctoral degrees in Psychology at the University of Florida. His master’s thesis focused on oculomotor and vestibulo-ocular reflex function in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). His doctoral dissertation focused on the neural circuitry mediating repetitive behavior in individuals ASD and an animal model of repetitive behavior, utilizing magnetic resonance and diffusion tensor imaging. Dr. Wilkes’ current work focuses on movement disorders, including effects of deep brain stimulation in essential tremor, and translational studies of alpha-synuclein pathology.
Research Interests
Dr. Wilkes is interested in sensorimotor systems and corresponding brain disorders, utilizing a bidirectional translational research approach with multimodal neuroimaging techniques.
