Phone: Dr. Albantakis’ research is aimed at developing novel computational tools to analyze and model the origins, symptoms, and potential for interventions of mental disorders in a causal, mechanistic manner at the individual and group level.
Phone: Improving techniques for measuring functional brain organization (specifically, resting-state functional connectivity MRI)
Phone: Development of PET methodologies to investigate neurochemical changes in the brain and studying novel radioligands to characterize neurotransmitter-protein interactions and how they are influenced by development, genes, environment and aging.
Phone: Dr. Cirelli’s research is aimed at investigating the fundamental mechanisms of sleep regulation by using a combination of molecular and genetic approaches.
Phone: Infant and early childhood mental health and early parent-child relationships
Phone: Neural bases of emotion and emotional style and methods to promote human flourishing including meditation and related contemplative practices.
Phone: Dr. Herringa's BRAVE Lab examines developmental brain mechanisms of resilience and vulnerability in youth following traumatic events
Phone: The Kalin Lab combines molecular, preclinical animal models, and human functional imaging studies to understand the neurobiological mechanisms underlying anxiety and mood disorders.
Phone: The goal of Dr. Koenigs’s research is to improve mental healthcare and promote resilience for individuals who are currently or formerly incarcerated.
Phone: Dr. Lainhart’s research focuses on understanding brain growth, development, and maturation in individuals with autism from childhood into mid-adulthood.
Phone: Contemplative approaches to the understanding and treatment of psychiatric illness, with a focus on substance use and other addictive disorders
Phone: Plante Lab focuses on applied research at the intersections of sleep medicine and psychiatry, with emphasis on disorders of excessive daytime sleepiness and/or sleep duration
Phone: My program of research is focused on investigating the biology of the bi-directional mind-brain-immune pathways through which emotion and inflammation are mutually influential using a wide range of tools for this purpose, including functional and structural neuroimaging (MRI and PET).
Phone: Investigates both risk factors and behavioral treatments for unhealthy eating and activity patterns
Phone: The impact of maternal mental illness, substance abuse, and stress during perinatal period on obstetrical, neonatal, and developmental outcomes.
Phone: Dr. Tononi's work involved the development of a comprehensive hypothesis about the function of sleep: the synaptic homeostasis hypothesis (SHY)
"Our graduates, whether they go into primary care, specialty care or public service will rise as leaders because they have learned how to learn in an environment in which research helps shape practice."—Robert Golden, MD Dean, Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health
