M.D. Amir Levine is a neuroscientist and psychiatrist who specializes on adults, children, and adolescents. Amir has been pursuing brain research at Columbia University under the tutelage of Nobel Prize Laureate Eric Kandel for the past few years after graduating from the residency program at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University. Amir also enjoys working with patients, and it was while working in a therapeutic nursery with mothers and children that he first learned the effectiveness of attachment theory. His therapeutic experience, along with a thorough grasp of the brain from a neuroscientist's perspective, has contributed to his appreciation of attachment theory and its amazing success in assisting patients in healing.
