Yoni Kapnik Ashar

I'm a doctoral student in clinical psychology and neuroscience at the University of Colorado Boulder where I work with Dr. Tor Wager and Dr. Sona Dimidjian .

I study the brain bases of placebo effects, chronic pain, meditation, and compassion using functional MRI and machine learning. I seek to understand how our thoughts and beliefs influence our health via the brain, and to create neuroimaging research products with clinical and societal applications.
