Megan McClintick, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Megan McClintick joined the London Laboratory in January 2017 as a postdoctoral researcher with an interest in the use of multi-modal neuroimaging approaches to study the neural substrates of addiction and its cognitive and behavioral correlates. Her graduate work was completed in the laboratory of Dr. Kathy Grant at the Oregon Health & Science University, where she examined associations between amygdalocortical resting state functional connectivity, HPA axis reactivity, temperament, and ethanol self-administration in a non-human primate model. In collaboration with Dr. Damien Fair, her work utilized functional and structural neuroimaging in anesthetized macaque monkeys. Dr. McClintick manages the stimulant neuroimaging studies in the lab.
