Dr. Andreescu is a geriatric psychiatrist and over the last decade she studied the neural basis of mood and anxiety disorders in the elderly. She is currently investigating the functional neuroanatomy correlates of worry in older adults, with a special interest for the association of worry severity with connectivity measures in canonical brain networks and the moderation effect of brain aging. Additionally, Dr. Andreescu studies functional connectivity changes associated with medication exposure in late-life depression. She is also involved in projects focused on the association between insulin resistance and depression.
