 Biography
Research Interest :

Dr. Potenza′s research has focused on the neurobiology and treatment of disorders characterized by impaired impulse control, particularly the disorders characterized in DSM-IV as “Impulse Control Disorders Not Elsewhere Classified.” The majority of this work has focused on understanding clinical and neurobiological underpinnings of these disorders, and their co-occurrences with other mental health conditions such as anxiety and depressive disorders, in order to advance prevention and treatment strategies. This work has involved a developmental perspective, with a focus on adolescence. Dr. Potenza′s research has applied brain imaging, genetic, epidemiological and clinical trials methodologies to gain knowledge and improve prevention and treatment strategies. This work has also involved a specific focus on gender and identifying potential intermediary phenotypes, like facets of impulsivity, that may in part explain the high rates of co-occurrence between impulse control disorders and other mental health conditions, and might represent novel targets for prevention and treatment strategies.

Biography :

I was born in El Salvador, Central America. Like all developing countries, the needs here are many and resources are scarce. When I was about to start my studies in psychology, university education was very poor here. Seeking for better educational opportunities and willing to learn more, I moved to Europe. I did my studies in psychology, specialized in the clinical area, doing both treatment and research. During that time, I became more and more interested on eating disorders, depression, anxiety and psychosomatic disorders. Before I noticed, twelve years had passed. Almost three years ago I decided to bring what I learned abroad and plant it in this fertile land, hoping it could grow in El Salvador. I founded Arborétum in association with colleagues with different fields of expertise. This is an institution with three primary goals: psychological treatment for patients, professional training and research.
