  • Dr Valentina Lorenzetti

    Dr Lorenzetti's research focuses on investigating the neurocognitive mechanisms of addiction and mental health using advanced neuroimaging techniques, multi-site international neuroimaging consortia, RCTs and longitudinal study designs.

    Dr Lorenzetti welcomes any new national and international exchange/visiting students, and prospective PhD students interested in getting experience / driving research projects in the areas of neuroimaging, addiction and mental health.

    Her research focuses on distinct streams including unpacking
    (i) whether recreational use vs dependence on substances have a distinct neural signature,
    (ii) the role of gender differences in substance use neurobiology,
    (iii) the role of distinct neuroprotective and neurotoxic cannabinoids on the brain and mental health,
    (iv) the effect of mindfulness-based interventions in recovering aberrant neurobiology in addiction and in alleviating dependence symptoms.

    She is also interested in using neurofeedback and VR techniques as engaging evidence-based interventions in addiction.
