All potential group members will receive an individual sleep evaluation session, scheduled at their convenience. The workshop will be comprised of evidence-based cognitive and behavioral strategies shown to be efficacious in reducing insomnia symptoms. The workshop will then be offered after work, 5-6pm, on Wednesdays April 1, 8, 15, and 22. Take advantage of our special Spring promotion to pay just $40.00 for the 4-week program.

    The Drexel University Department of Psychology is pleased to announce our next Colloquium Series speaker:

    Jean King, Ph.D.

    Dr. Jean King holds a doctorate in Biology/Neuroscience from New York University. She has published over 60 original scientific papers in highly respected scientific journals, over 10 chapters in books and review articles in major neurophysiology journals, and is an editor of the New York Academy of Sciences Publication, "Roots of Mental Illness in Children". She has been a scientific consultant for the NSF and NIH as well as the Veterans Administration. Currently, she serves as Associate Provost of Biomedical Science Research, Professor of Psychiatry, and Director of the Center for Comparative NeuroImaging at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Her research aims to build and expand excellence in comparative neuroimaging (all species from mice to humans) through promotion of translational research approaches focused on the understanding and treatment of disease processes, with particular emphasis on stress-induced mental health disorders.

    Colloquium Presentation:

    It is known that there is a higher prevalence of substance use (e.g., nicotine and marijuana) in disorders like Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We believe that gaining an understanding of how these substances impact both the structure and function of the brain may better position us to identify therapies to treat these complex co-morbidities. To this end, our lab utilizes multi-modal imaging techniques to probe the impact of drugs on brain neuroplasticity in both preclinical models and humans with/without ADHD.
