Jennifer Rabin, PhD, C.Psych
Dr. Rabin is a clinical neuropsychologist and scientist at Sunnybrook Research Institute. Her research program focuses on two main themes. As the neuropsychology lead in the Harquail Centre for Neuromodulation, her research characterizes cognitive, behavioural, and psychosocial changes associated with novel neuromodulation strategies. This includes low-intensity focused ultrasound (FUS) to open up the blood-brain barrier in patients with Alzheimer’s disease, and high-intensity FUS to treat severe psychiatric and neurological conditions, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder, major depressive disorder, and essential tremor. Another line of her research combines multimodal neuroimaging, such as MRI and PET, with sensitive neuropsychological measures to better understand modifiable risk factors that may delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
