Research & Publications
My research is directed toward elucidating structural abnormalities in brain that are associated with neuropsychiatric illness, drug exposure, and aging. In particular, I am interested in the prefrontal cortex and its connections with other brain areas because the prefrontal cortex mediates higher brain function and has been strongly implicated in diseases such as schizophrenia and posttraumatic stress disorder.
