Kyungmo Park, KMD, PhD
Dr. Kyungmo Park’s current research interests, in a broad sense, is 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.
Currently, he has been working in the Biomedical Engineering Department at Kyunghee University since 1999. He received B.S. and Ph.D in Traditional Medicine at Kyung Hee University, Korea in 1994 and 1999 respectively. Also, he conducted his researches in Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston, USA from 2006 to 2011. He has been involved in Development of International Classification of Traditional Medicine of WHO since 2004.
While his 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., his students and he intend to investigate the physiological interaction between mind and body. Also, they are trying to exploring the self-regulation on neuro-physiological states using real-time fMRI neurofeedback technique. He strongly believes that there's ways for human being to go beyond our evolutionary determinism.
