Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center

The Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center at the Institute of Living, was founded in 2001. The mission of the Center is to be at the forefront of research in brain disorders.

Techniques employed by Center faculty include functional, structural, and spectroscopic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electrophysiology (EEG, ERPs), and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).

The Center is directed by Dr. Godfrey Pearlson, Professor of Psychiatry, Yale University School of Medicine. The Olin NRC has other laboratories led by Drs. David Glahn and Michael C. Stevens. The Center faculty have research interests in many aspects of cognitive function including normal aging, working and long term memory, error monitoring, language and attention. We examine these cognitive processes in depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, manic-depressive illness, and drug abuse.

The Center is supported by grants from the National Institute of Health, (NIMH, NINDS, NIA and NIDA) totaling several million dollars. The Center faculty also provide mentorship and training for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral fellows.
