Janette Abramowitz, MD is a faculty and assistant professor at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Hawaii John Burns School of Medicine. She is serving as a research faculty mentoring medical students at the Brain Mapping Lab, of the Brain Research, Innovation & Translation Labs Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience in studying how neuronal cortical networks interact with the external environment through neurophysiologic and neuroimaging modalities. The integration of behavioral neuroscience, neurophysiology and bio signal processing knowledge is translated into developing better understanding of cortical physiology in diseases like Alzheimer’s dementia and others.
She received her medical degree from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She completed residency in the Combined Program in Neurology and Psychiatry at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Abramowitz is board eligible in Psychiatry and Neurology. Her clinical interests are consultation liaison psychiatry, inpatient psychiatry and neuropsychiatry, as well as movement, cognitive, functional neurological, and autism spectrum disorders. She also has hopes to become skilled in neuromodulation. Her research interests at this time include psychiatric presentations in epilepsy and autoimmune disorders, the effects of weather patterns on behavior, and paraphilias.
