Biography:

Lauren A. M. Lebois, PhD, is a cognitive neuroscientist focusing on the biomarkers of trauma-spectrum disorders as an assistant neuroscientist in the laboratory of Kerry J. Ressler, MD, PhD. She is also the director of neuroimaging for the Dissociative Disorders and Trauma Research Program led by Milissa L. Kaufman, MD, PhD. Overall, her work aims to scientifically examine the predictors and correlates of post-traumatic neuropsychiatric sequelae, and in doing so reduce stigma and improve psychiatric care.

Currently, Dr. Lebois employs functional magnetic resonance imaging, neuroimaging genetic, and behavioral techniques to better understand the mechanisms of traumatic dissociation, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) dysfunction and recovery. She has a particular interest in self-processing related to PTSD and dissociative identity disorder.
