Speaker Bio


Brett Froeliger, PhD is a Professor in the Departments of Psychology & Behavioral Science and Psychiatry, and Director of the Cognitive Neuroscience Core Facility at the University of Missouri. He completed his PhD at Southern Illinois University, postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychopharmacology at Duke University Medical Center, joined the Neuroscience Faculty at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2013 and then joined the faculty at MU in 2020. His program of research has been continuously funded by NIH since 2012 and is organized around using brain imaging techniques to evaluate the potential benefit of novel pharmacotherapies, behavioral interventions, and non-invasive neural stimulation for treating drug addiction. Dr. Brett Froeliger and his team applied transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to reveal brain function to drug addiction.
