Kyungmo Park, PhD
Professor at Dept. of Biomedical Engineering,
Kyung Hee University, South Korea
My current research interests, in a broad sense, are (1) to understand the neural mechanism of physiological mind and psychological body using fMRI and to extend the insight to the integrative medical interventions including acupuncture, qigong, meditation and self-healing. (2) to find underlying clinical logic of traditional medicine and construct a comprehensive model of integrative medicine based on the interesting evidences in the making.
While my lab performs neuroimaging experiments with healthy subjects as well as various clinical conditions including low back pain, facial palsy, cognitive impairment, and functional dyspepsia etc., we are investigating the physiological interaction between mind and body. Also we are trying to exploring the self-regulation on neuro-physiological states using real-time fMRI neurofeedback technique.
Currently, I have been working in the biomedical engineering department at Kyunghee University since 1999. I received B.S. and Ph.D in Traditional Medicine at Kyung Hee University, Korea in 1994 and 1999 respectively. Also I conducted my research in Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, USA from 2006 to 2011. Also I have been involved in TC215 committee for Health informatics of ISO and the development of International Classification of Traditional Medicine of WHO since 2004.
I strongly believe that there’s ways for human being to go beyond our evolutionary determinism. The ways include the self-regulation of their mind and body as well as the advanced modern technology and political system. This is reason why I am conducting my neuroimaging studies with physiological measures, real-time fMRI technique, and new experimental ideas.
