Studies include the role of the amygdala in aberrant emotional processing which plays a key role in symptoms such as psychosis, and the severe mood and anxiety disorders. Areas of interest include the afferent influence of the amygdala and related limbic structures on the dopamine system, and defining new limbic regions of the striatum based on amygdaloid inputs. Ongoing studies also include identifying amygdaloid subregions whose molecular and connectional features place them in a vulnerable position for aberrant plastic changes after exposure to chronic stress.CredentialsEducation1989MD | Yeshiva University Albert Einstein College of MedicinePost-doctoral Training & Residency10/01/1993 - 09/30/1996Fellowship at University of Rochester Medical Center07/01/1990 - 06/30/1993Residency in Psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell07/01/1989 - 06/30/1990Internship in Psychiatry at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill CornellVIEW ALL expand_moreAwards2010 - PresentMemberLocation: American College of Neuropsychopharmacology2005M.L.
