Dr. Raul Corredor is a clinician-scientist. Currently he is voluntary faculty of psychiatry at the Florida International University (FIU) Herbert Wertheim College of medicine. Also, during his time as visiting assistant professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine performed research in mechanisms of neuronal survival and death, aiming for a better understanding of neuropsychiatric disorders. Current research includes neurofeedback and brain mapping to optimize effects of brain stimulation and therapy in brain plasticity and behavior. He received his MD degree and completed his residency training in neurology at Del Rosario University in Bogota, Colombia, where he became faculty at the school of medicine and practiced as clinical neurologist for several years. He has more than 20 years of experience in complementary medicine including acupuncture and electro-acupuncture for pain management and anxiety-related psychosomatic disorders. Dr. Corredor received his PhD degree in neuroscience from the University of Miami for his research about the role of second messengers in neuronal survival and regeneration in the central nervous system. He has published several papers in the topic, including the journal of neuroscience. He completed his medical internship at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York; and his residency training in general psychiatry at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital earning the Bernard Goodman award for his contributions to the overall advancement of psychiatric treatment. He is board certified by the American board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Dr. Corredor’s research interest include the development of novel therapeutic strategies to promote brain plasticity based on elucidating the role of intracellular signaling and brain stimulation in neuronal and glial mechanisms of growth, survival and death. Dr. Corredor trained in transcranial magnetic stimulation techniques at the Danish Research Centre for Magnetic Resonance.
As clinician-researcher Dr. Corredor has extensive experience treating patients with neuropsychiatric disorders that affect behavior and cognition. Dr. Corredor clinical work uses integrative medicine, electrical brain stimulation, repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches to promote brain plasticity and restore the balance of the mind/body relationship in patients with psychosomatic disorders, chronic pain, and cognitive disorders, from ADHD to neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s disease.
