Marisa M. Silveri, Ph.D.

Dr. Silveri has been studying the neurobiology of brain development and consequences of alcohol and drugĀ abuse for two decades, using preclinical and clinical models. Her current work uses non-invasive magnetic resonance techniques to examine brain structure, function and neurochemistry, focusing on consequences of alcohol use and abuse. Neurobiological measures are examined relative to cognitive ability and clinical indicators of mood, anxiety, and impulsivity, across healthy adolescent, emerging adult, and adult cohorts, and those with addictions and co-morbid psychiatric illnesses.

Dr. Silveri is a recipient of awards from the Research Society on Alcoholism and the College of Problems on Drug Dependence, and has received NIH funding from the NIAAA, including two current R01s focusing on the impact of alcohol use on adolescent brain development and the neurobiological consequences of binge drinking in emerging adults.
