Gregory DiGirolamo, PhD

Gregory DiGirolamo Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Radiology
Director, Subdivision of Addiction Research

Gregg DiGirolamo, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the College of the Holy Cross, and Associate Professor of Radiology and Psychiatry at UMass Medical School.

Research Interest

Dr. DiGirolamo’s research interest is investigating the cognitive and neural mechanisms of unconscious processes and how they drive people’s behavior. Within addiction research, we investigate how control over behavior breaks down during the progression to addiction, how to augment control during treatment, and how breakdowns in control lead to relapse. We are also interested in understanding the underlying neural areas involved in control, and how different medications or therapies improve control and increase activity in the neural areas involved in control in patients with addiction.
