Jazmin Camchong

Assistant Professor


I hold a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience in Psychology from the University of Georgia. My objective is to implement effective clinical and non-invasive interventions to support recovery from substance use disorder. I have published neuroimaging findings on the neural progression of recovery in addiction, focusing on the association between brain functional organization and treatment outcomes.

Expanding on my initial neuroimaging findings, I am now focused on integrating cognitive training programs with non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to develop biologically-based interventions for substance use disorder. Notably, my research includes the first study demonstrating that tDCS administered during early abstinence in alcohol use disorder increases engagement of brain networks supporting abstinence and reduces future relapse rates.

Continuing my efforts, I am conducting clinical trials utilizing this innovative non-invasive neurostimulation intervention, laying the groundwork for the clinical application of a cost-effective, scalable, neuroscience-based treatment for addiction.
