Yoni K. Ashar

I study the brain, pain, and emotion. I am currently completing my clinical internship at Weill Cornell Medical College, as part of a doctorate in clinical psychology and neuroscience from the University of Colorado Boulder.

My current focus is on psychological treatments for chronic pain. Other research areas include brain mechanisms of placebo effects, meditation, and empathy, using functional MRI and machine learning. My research seeks to understand how our thoughts and behaviors influence our health and to create neuroimaging research products with clinical applications.
