Gregory Lieberman, PhD Candidate
Greg is currently a Ph.D. candidate in cognitive neuroscience in the University of Vermont Neuroscience Graduate Program. He received his B.A. in psychology from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst) in 2003, where he interned for a year as an assistant elementary school psychologist. He then attended Harvard University extension school's post-baccalaureate pre-medicine program while working as a lab technician at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute for Neurodegenerative Disease (MIND). After two years as a lab technician, Greg continued to work at MIND as a senior research technologist and lab manager for two years before moving to Vermont for graduate school. Greg's initial graduate work focused on the neurological mechanisms and circuitry behind fear and anxiety. His current project investigates differences in white matter connectivity between the brains of chronic pain patients and healthy volunteers, and whether the brain's white matter connections are altered as a result of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Additionally, he collaborates on projects researching mindfulness meditation as a clinical intervention for mild traumatic brain injury and the mechanisms behind analgesic music-induced chills.
