    Current Role at Stanford Lindsay joined the Eating Disorders Research Lab in early 2020 as a data analyst and assessor conducting our post-treatment and fidelity assessments for a multisite clinical trial Stanford has collaborated to conduct with the Oregon Research Institute. The Body Project: A Dissonance-Based Eating Disorder Prevention Intervention is an empirically based eating disorder prevention program that offers young women an opportunity to critically consider the costs of pursuing the ultra-thin ideal promoted in the mass media, and it improves body acceptance and reduces risk for developing eating disorders. It is the only currently available eating disorder prevention program that has been shown to reduce risk for onset of eating disorders and received support in trials conducted by several independent research groups. The project is being funded by the National Institutes of Health, and is being conducted by Cara Bohan at Stanford University, Eric Stice, Ph.D at Oregon Research Institute, Meghan Butryn, Ph.D at Drexel University, and Christopher Beevers, Ph.D at the University of Texas in Austin. Lindsay is passionate about increasing public knowledge and understanding of eating disorders to help get appropriate support to those who need it.

  • M Windy McNerney, PhD

    M Windy McNerney, PhD

    Clinical Assistant Professor (Affiliated) [Vapahcs], Psych/General Psychiatry and Psychology (Adult)

    Bio Dr. M. Windy McNerney is Research Health Specialist in the MIRECC the VA Palo Alto, and a Clinical Assistant Professor (Affiliated) at Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford School of Medicine. She earned her PhD from the University of Notre Dame, went on to a postdoctoral position and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (DOE), and then completed fellowship at the WRIISC program at the VA and Stanford University.

    Dr. McNerney is primarily interested in the neurophysiology and biochemistry of brain and mental health diseases, especially degenerative diseases, depression, TBI, PTSD, and addiction. She is collaborating with researchers to integrate brain imaging and biochemical markers in hopes to better understand these diseases. She also is taking a lead role in investigating the biochemistry of magnetic brain stimulation. She is currently teaching two classes at Stanford, entitled “Addictions in Our World: From Physiology to Human Behavior,” and "The Opioid Epidemic: Using Neuroscience to Inform Policy and Law", which discuss the societal implications of addiction from a neurophysiological prospective.
