Research

There are many as yet unexplored paths on the journey to gaining a better understanding of the field of Psychiatry.  Research allows us to chart those paths.

Several faculty at the James H. Quillen College of Medicine Department of Psychiatry are involved in a variety of research projects.

Dr. Merry Miller is working on the comparison of tube feeding practices in the treatment of anorexia nervosa.

Dr. Norman Moore is involved with the following projects: 

  • Effect of Passive Immunization on the Progression of Mild Alzheimer's Disease
  • Hyperbbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy for Diabetic Encephalopathy
  • EEG Biofeedback relaxation training for psychiatric and control subjects
  • Efficacy of EEG biofeedback  Relaxation in reducing child and adolescent and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI)
  • Neuropsychological Assessment of Patients with Vascular Dementia: A Pilot Study
  • Neurocognitive Impairment Following Stroke: A pilot Study

All faculty involved in research at the ETSU Department of Psychiatry welcome interested residents and students to become involved in their projects.
