Clinical Program Leader

Dr. Lindsay Oberman, PhD is the Clinical Program Leader for TMS trials at the Center for Neuroscience and Regenerative Medicine with a faculty appointment in the Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology at the Uniformed Services University (USU). She is also a “Special Volunteer” in the Noninvasive Neuromodulation Unit, National Institute of Mental Health, National Institutes of Health. The focus of her research is to investigate the mechanisms that contribute to the function and dysfunction of neural systems involved in the core symptoms of complex neuropsychiatric disorders with the ultimate goal of developing novel treatment strategies. Over the past 10 years working in this field, she has gained an appreciation for the complexity of the pathophysiology of behaviorally defined disorders. Thus, she has recently shifted her focus to identifying and modifying neural circuits associated with specific cross diagnostic behavioral domains (such as mood regulation, sensory processing, social cognition, language processing, and executive functioning/cognitive control) in order to better target the symptoms that affect the quality of life of the individuals with neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders including autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
