Research Profile

Identifying neurocognitive factors that influence self-perception and behavior change among individuals with substance use disorders. Utilizes a combination of structural and functional neuroimaging, neurocognitive and neurobehavioral measures, and diagnostic interviewing in her research.

Dr. Domenico’s dissertation research focused on mapping the organizational properties of the self-concept, and identifying relationships between organizational properties and drinking (alcohol use) behavior among individuals with alcohol use disorder. During her postdoctoral fellowship, she received additional, specialized training in administering and interpreting neurocognitive and neurobehavioral measures, and neuroimaging. Combining these two lines of research, working with the UF Neurocognitive Laboratory, she developed a unique fMRI task designed to prime and isolate self-referential neurological networks. This task is currently being used to identify relationships between functional connectivity within the brain, and relapse among individuals with use disorders.
