Jong H. Yoon
Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (General Psychiatry and Psychology-Adult) at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research seeks to discover the brain mechanisms responsible for schizophrenia and to translate this knowledge into the clinic to improve how we diagnose and treat this condition. Towards these ends, our group has been developing cutting-edge neuroimaging tools to identify neurobiological abnormalities and test novel systems-level disease models of psychosis and schizophrenia directly in individuals with these conditions.
We have been particularly interested in the role of neocortical-basal ganglia circuit dysfunction. A working hypothesis is that some of the core symptoms of schizophrenia are attributable to impairments in neocortical function that results in disconnectivity with components of the basal ganglia and dysregulation of their activity. The Yoon Lab has developed new high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging methods to more precisely measure the function of basal ganglia components, which given their small size and location deep within the brain has been challenging. This includes ways to measure the activity of nuclei that store and control the release of dopamine throughout the brain, a neurochemical that is one of the most important factors in the production of psychosis in schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric conditions.

Dokyoung Sophia You
Instructor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Bio I am interested in investigating the role of stress and emotion regulatory system in chronic pain and substance use. Ultimately, I want to develop mechanisms-based psychological interventions for patients suffering from chronic pain to optimize pain management strategies with less medications and substances and to help patients live meaningful life.
Nichole Young-Lin, MD, MBA
Adjunct Clinical Instructor, Obstetrics & Gynecology - General
Bio Dr. Nichole Young-Lin has over 15 years of experience in reproductive health. She is passionate about providing comprehensive care for her patients throughout the continuum of their lives ? from adolescence to post-menopause.
Her areas of medical interest and specialty include pre-conception counseling, supporting her patients to achieve a positive pregnancy and childbirth experience, contraception care, medical and surgical management of benign gynecological conditions (including minimally invasive surgery such as robotic-assisted laparoscopy) and office-based procedures.
Her goal is to partner with her patients to provide compassionate and holistic care with an emphasis on empowerment through education and shared decision-making.
When not working, she can be found spending time with her family, discovering new places to eat and exploring destinations near and far.
