Welcome to the UNC Chapel Hill Neurocognition and Imaging Research Lab (UNC NIRL)!
Our lab is interested in examining the functional anatomy of attention and information selection in the healthy human brain, and how these neural circuits breakdown in schizophrenia and other neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders. Our studies utilize multimodal neuroimaging techniques, including functional magnetic resonance imaging, scalp-recorded event-related potentials and behavioral neurocognitive testing batteries.[iconheading type=”h2″ style=”fa fa-info-circle” color=”#1e73be”]Employment Opportunities:[/iconheading]
- Postdoctoral Psychology Fellowship: The Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (www.cidd.unc.edu) invites applications for postdoctoral leadership training in psychology. The CIDD is home to three core federal training initiatives which offer clinical and research opportunities: University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities Education, Research and Service (UCEDD); Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND); and the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC).
- T32 Post-Doctoral Research Training Program – 2019: The University of North Carolina, Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities (UNC-CIDD) is seeking fellows for a postdoctoral research training program in neurodevelopmental disorders. Funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), this program emphasizes research training in both the biological basis and clinical manifestations of neurodevelopmental disorders. Both clinical and basic science research opportunities are available.
Do you want to participate in schizophrenia research?
Stress plays a vital role in the onset of psychiatric illnesses such as schizophrenia. The goals of our study are to investigate how stress impacts activity in certain parts of the brain that are known to be affected by schizophrenia.
