Personal profile


Dr Rebecca Segrave is a Clinical Neuropsychologist and the David Winston Turner Senior Research Fellow at the Monash University Brain and Mental Health Laboratory. She uses a combination of neuroscience, neuropsychology and brain stimulation techniques to investigate the causes of mental illness and develop new non-medication approaches to treatment. Dr Segrave has built a broad program of research investigating the efficacy of novel brain stimulation, cognitive training and lifestyle based interventions for the treatment of major depression and compulsive disorders. She has a particular interest in why some people respond to certain treatment and others don't, and how by identifying which characteristics are associated with therapeutic response we can personalise treatment delivery.

Dr Segrave has worked in biological psychiatry research for over 10 years. She has received research funding from the National Health and Medical Research Council, beyondblue, the Edward Dunlop Medical Research Foundation and Monash University, regularly presents her work at national and international conferences and community forums. She has been an invited advisor to the NSW Department of Health and the Melbourne Museum. The quality and broad appeal of her research has also been recognised via repeated invited media interviews (e.g. The Age, Wall Street Journal, SBS Radio, 3CR, Radio National) and community presentations (e.g. Rotary Australia, RU OK Day).
