Prior to joining the NINDS, Pantea was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Chicago, in the Department of Neurobiology where her work was focused on understanding how the brain transforms incoming sensory information into abstract representations such as grouping objects into categories. She used a non-human primate model of the brain and advanced electrophysiological techniques to study the role of the parietal lobe in categorization of visual stimuli. Her doctoral research focused on developing novel biomarkers for Schizophrenia using resting state fMRI activity of the brain as well as retinal activity in combination with a variety of data mining and machine learning techniques. Pantea received a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran in 2008, a Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Chalmers University of Technology in 2011, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 2017.
