About LNCD

Welcome to the Lab of Neurocognitive Development of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. We use multimodal neuroimaging (fMRI, DTI, MEG, and PET) to characterize neurocognitive developmental specialization during the adolescent transition from childhood to adulthood. We focus on normative cognitive development as well as atypical development such as in schizophrenia and substance use. Our current research focuses on delineating brain circuitry underlying higher-order cognition including networks for voluntary response suppression and spatial working memory.
