The lab’s primary research focus is on schizophrenia and schizophrenia-spectrum disorders. My research program encompasses the following: biological bases of psychotic disorders; early identification and development of psychotic disorders; application of biobehavioral measures to identify at-risk populations; utilization of psychophysiological performance to assist in refining diagnostic nosology and delineation of the schizophrenia spectrum; and assessment of the interface between affective and cognitive processing in schizophrenia and related disorders. Students working with me are taught psychometric, psychophysiological, neuropsychological, and clinical assessment techniques.
