Michael Cole, PhD

Assistant Professor

Dr. Cole's research focuses on discovering the cognitive and neural mechanisms that make human behavior uniquely flexible and intelligent. His research focuses on two broad themes. 1) Brain network mechanisms of flexible cognitive control: Flexible control – a capacity supporting adaptive, goal-directed behavior important in daily life – is affected in a variety of mental illnesses, markedly reducing quality of life. See Cole & Schneider (2007) for evidence that flexible control is implemented...

David C. Glahn, PhD

Professor of Psychiatry

The research focus of my laboratory is on the genetics of brain structure and function. Our goals include elucidation of the neurobiological roots of major mental illnesses through the integration of cognitive neuropsychological, functional and structural neuroimaging, and behavioral and molecular genetic approaches. The ultimate goals of this research is the identification of genes involved in affective and psychotic illnesses as well as genes that influence non-pathological brain structure...
