Social Discrimination and its Associations with Brain Function
Host: Nathalie Jette, MD
Dr. Uraina Clark completed a PhD in Psychology at Boston University and postdoctoral training in Clinical Neuropsychology and Neuroimaging at Brown University. She is an Assistant Professor in the Neurology Department at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In her primary line of research, Dr. Clark utilizes structural and functional neuroimaging techniques, as well as neuropsychological assessments, to examine the neural and neurobehavioral effects of early-life stress in adults. More recently, she has begun to use these techniques to examine the different ways in which social discrimination and other types of adverse social experiences might be impacting brain function and behavior in adults who are marginalized (based on gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, age, health status, etc.).
