Mike Kelly, a medical student who did a summer rotation with Dr. Boes, analyzed a large clinical database at the Berenson Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation and showed that one's response to a treatment course of TMS in depression predicts future responses.

David Fischer took a year off of medical school at Harvard Medical School and collaborated with Dr. Boes on this project investigating focal brainstem lesions that cause coma.  Both Drs. Fischer and Boes were recognized by      the American Academy of Neurology for this work.  Also see 'lab news' for additional articles.  Joel Geerling, co-senior author with Mike Fox, moved from Boston at Iowa at the same time as Dr. Boes to continue work on this topic.

This article describes a novel technique for combining traditional lesion mapping with normative functional connectivity data to infer the remote network effects of focal brain lesions.  In doing so, this article links heterogeneous subcortical lesions to cortical regions hypothesized to be involved in the expression of symptoms from the lesion across four lesion syndromes.

This article describes a patient Dr. Boes cared for as a medical student.  It is the first report providing a detailed neuropsychological and behavioral assessment of a patient with congenital dysplasia of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, which resulted in a pronounced antisocial behavior that shared overlap with developmental psychopathy.
