Apkar Vania Apkarian is a professor of neuroscience at Northwestern University. He has been a pioneer in the use of Magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study the neurochemistry of the brain. Dr.Apkarian has a masters degree in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California and earned a Ph.D. in neuroscience from the State University of New York Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York. He is the brother of V. A. Apkarian, a noted laser spectroscopist.

Dr. Apkarian has studied pain for two decades, both in animal models and fMRI studies in humans. His current interests include cortical dynamics of pain as well as brain plasticity. His overall goal is the uncovering of brain mechanisms underlying pain qualia. This process should hopefully traverse through the alleviation of clinical pain conditions, as well as a more profound theoretical and mechanistic understanding of the brain.
