Morgan Elliott

PHD Student

Morgan is currently completing a combined Masters and PhD in Clinical Psychology. Morgan’s research investigates if future-oriented thinking, specifically prospective memory, episodic future thinking, and episodic foresight, is adversely affected in the context of both acute alcohol intoxication and alcohol dependence. Additionally, this project aims to identify if there is a relationship between future-oriented thinking and the outcome of alcohol dependence rehabilitation. Morgan is particularly interested in understanding the effects of alcohol on the brain and the implications for the treatment of alcohol dependence.
