Additional Info
Functional brain imaging using positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provide novel insight into brain mechanisms underlying development of alcohol dependence, PTSD and depression.

Dr. Alex Neumeister completed his medical school at the University of Vienna in Austria, where he did his residency training in Psychiatry and Neurology. His research aims to better understanding of the environmental and genetic contributions to the etiology of stress related disorders such as alcohol dependence, PTSD and depression. Dr. Neumeister looks at brain mechanisms, using PET and MRI, to study the function of brain regions which play a critical role in the development of these disorders. His studies aim to provide a new understanding of the impact of stress on brain function, with the ultimate goal to provide a better means of prevention and treatment. His research has been published in the leading scientific journals of the field, and Dr. Neumeister was awarded national and international awards for his work.
