Broc Pagni, PhD

Dr. Broc Pagni is a post-doctoral cognitive neuroscientist at the NYU Langone Center for Psychedelic Medicine. His research is supported by the Psychedelic Research Training Program, and is focused on identifying therapeutic psychological and neural mechanisms of psychedelic-assisted treatments. Dr. Pagni is currently using functional MRI (fMRI), computational modeling, and neuropsychological testing to elucidate the therapeutic correlates of psilocybin-assisted treatment in patients with alcohol use disorder. Before joining NYU, he received his PhD in Neuroscience from Arizona State University, where he used fMRI and EEG to characterize the neural mechanisms underlying the therapeutic effect of mindfulness meditation in adults with autism spectrum disorder.
