Neural Predictors of Treatment Outcomes and Trajectories in Childhood Psychiatric Disorders

Dr Marsh Lecture
Thursday, November 29, 2018
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Rachel Marsh, PhD
Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences Grand Rounds

Dr. Marsh is an Irving Philips Professor of Medical Psychology (in Child Psychiatry) at Columbia University Medical Center where she directs the Cognitive Development and Neuroimaging Laboratory. She also directs MRI research at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and co-directs the NIMH-funded T32 postdoctoral training program in translational research in child psychiatry at Columbia University. Native New Yorker, Dr. Marsh received her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from the City University of New York. Her graduate work focused on cognitive and language development in infancy and early childhood. During her postdoctoral training at Columbia University, she began developing expertise in applying fMRI to studies of childhood psychopathologies. Dr. Marsh's current work is focused on understanding the neurodevelopmental trajectories of anxiety and eating disorders. Specifically, her lab uses multimodal MRI techniques to study the function, structure, and connectivity of the neural circuits that support self-regulation and learning over development in health and illness. She recently finished a NIMH-funded longitudinal, multimodal MRI study of the neurodevelopment of these circuits in adolescents with Bulimia Nervosa (R01MH090062). Together with her collaborators, she is also conducting NIMH-funded studies of children and adults w/Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (R21MH101441 & R01MH104648). This Grand Rounds event is made possible by the Ewald W. Busses Lectureship Series
