Michael E Silverman, PhD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Psychiatry
Dr. Silverman a licensed psychologist, dual trained in both psychotherapeutic techniques and cognitive psychology. He has developed and published numerous novel studies probing the relationships between mood, anxiety, behavior and physiologic and neuroanatomic response. Dr. Silverman also has extensive experience in neuropsychiatric and cognitive assessment. His current work focuses primarily on understanding the neuroanatomical, neurobiological and neurofunctional basis of mood change during pregnancy and the period following childbirth. He also has open studies exploring the neuropsychiatric influences of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclorosis (ALS; Lou Gehrig's disease), the neuroanatomic affects of chronic stress, and detailing the cognitive changes as the result of in utero dexamethasone treatment secondary to congenital adrenal hypoplasia risk.
