Kimberlee D'Ardenne, PhD

Postdoctoral Associate

Description of Work

Dr. Kimberlee D'Ardenne's research focuses on applying non-invasive magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopic methods to study brainstem monoamine neuromodulatory systems, which are affected by drug addiction, disease, and mental illness. For her dissertation work, she developed functional MRI methods that enable precise measurements from brainstem dopamine structures.

In the Montague lab, Dr. D'Ardenne applies the methods she developed in graduate school to further examine the complexity of the human dopamine system and to study drug addiction.
