The Woodward Lab investigates the brain-basis of psychotic and neurodevelopmental disorders.  We are especially interested in understanding why individuals with a psychotic illness have cognitive problems and if the cognitive deficits can be alleviated.  We use a variety of methods to investigate the brain, including neuroimaging, neuropsychological testing, and cognitive neuroscience experiments. There are several research themes in the Woodward Lab:

Theme 1: Brain Connectivity in Neuropsychiatric Disorders
Theme 2: Neural Basis of Cognitive Impairment in Psychosis
Theme 3: Neural Basis of Personality and Psychopathology
