Neuroimaging and Neuromodulation in Addiction                 

Posting expires on 01/05/2018

Research Site:
University of MInnesota - Twin Cities

Type of Research:
Clinical

Department:
Psychiatry

This opportunity does not have a stipend.

Description:
Research at the Laboratory for Neuropsychiatric Imaging examines how disruptions in brain connectivity may influence the pathophysiology, prognosis, treatment course and outcome of neuropsychiatric disorders.  Our group has used diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data to examine structural and functional brain connectivity in schizophrenia, depression and addiction.  We have two main projects involving the identification of dynamic changes in neural circuitry during abstinence as potential brain biomarkers of relapse in stimulant and alcohol use disorder.  Mapping the relationship between relapse risk and brain biomarkers will provide insight into the neurobiology of relapse vulnerability and will provide new options for personalized interventions such as neuromodulation.
