Jorge Martins holds a Ph.D. in Psychology and is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the WJCR. His research combines contemporary theory, advanced statistical modeling (e.g., ML predictive modeling), ecological momentary assessments (EMA), and multimodal neuroimaging methods–namely, electroencephalography (EEG), including event-related potentials (ERPs); and, more recently, voxel-based whole-brain functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) analysis and neural connectivity–to the understanding of the underlying causes contributing to the susceptibility for addiction and the wide heterogeneity in treatment outcomes. To date, he has authored or co-authored 16 peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals. In addition to his publications, he has been active in presenting his work at national and international conferences, totaling more than 30 communications in scientific meetings, including 11 oral presentations, 5 invited talks or symposia communications, and 17 poster presentations.
