Dr. Faith Gunning-Dixon received her BA in Psychology at American University in Washington, DC, and her Ph.D in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Memphis. For her dissertation, she used MRI to study the neuroanatomical correlates of executive dysfunction in older adults. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuropsychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, where she used functional MRI to study the neural basis of age-related decline in memory and affective processing. She then spent two years at the Zucker Hillside Hospital, where she was an Attending Neuropsychologist and then the Director of the Neurocognitive Assessment Laboratory. She was an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry at Weill Cornell Medical College from 2004 until 2010 and now is an Associate Professor. She uses MRI to advance the understanding of late-life mood disorders.
