About Us

Welcome to the MSU Clinical Neuroscience Lab! We are part of the Department of Psychology at Michigan State University.

The goal of our lab is to understand the cognitive and biological mechanisms of psychotic disorders, with a focus on schizophrenia. We are particularly interested in understanding how brain function is related to cognitive and social difficulties, psychotic symptoms (like hallucinations and delusions) and more generally to the subjective experience of individuals who have been diagnosed with psychotic disorders. A deeper understanding of symptoms and their mechanisms hold the promise to lead to more targeted and effective treatment options.
