Last Name



Dr. Linda Mah is a Clinician Scientist at the Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest and Assistant Professor in Geriatric Psychiatry.  Dr. Mah obtained her MD at University of Calgary and completed a psychiatric residency at McGill University, followed by a clinical neuropsychiatry fellowship at University of Massachusetts and research training at NIH in cognitive and affective neuroscience.  She has a Master of Health Sciences degree from Duke University.

Dr. Mah’s research program focuses on understanding the relationship between cognition and emotion and their neuroanatomical correlates in healthy aging and in disorders of the elderly, including late-life depression (LLD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Her research employs converging methods including behavioural paradigms, neuropsychological assessment, neuroimaging, and more recently, psychophysiology. She has a particular interest in examining emotion dysregulation and other neuropsychiatric symptoms as potential biomarkers of AD risk, and in understanding the link between stress and development of AD. Dr. Mah is also the PI on a number of clinical trials focused on using brain stimulation to treat depression in older adults with mild AD and as a potential intervention to prevent AD in older adults with MCI or remitted depression.

The Mah Lab welcomes inquires from highly motivated and accomplished individuals interested in volunteering, graduate studentships or post-doctoral fellowships.
