Dr. Bailey Munro is a post-doctoral researcher at Advanced Psychological Services of RI and a member of the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program at the University of Rhode Island. Dr. Munro was trained at the University of Rhode Island, first undertaking her B.S. in Biological Sciences, and subsequently her M.S. and Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Neuroscience. Dr. Munro’s clinical work deals chiefly with the diagnosis and treatment of children, adolescents, and adults suffering with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, anxiety, and depression disorders, as well as those with executive dysfunction and chronic pain. As an educator, Dr. Munro has taught physiological psychology, organic chemistry, and introductory chemistry labs, and guest lectured at Neurosciences colloquiums and Interdisciplinary Neurosciences courses.
Her research interests primarily involve executive functions, the nonmedical use of prescription stimulants, and ADHD. Her most current research involves the relationship between executive functioning, nonmedical use of prescription stimulants, and academic outcomes among college students. In the past, she focused on cellular and molecular neurobiology, specifically the presence and visualization of neuropeptides in early-evolved neural systems. She has used a number of tools including confocal and light microscopy, Western Blot, and cell cultures. She has published a number of papers in the areas of ADHD, executive functions, and prescription stimulants.
