Cognition Emotion Neuroscience Laboratory


Dr. Keedy’s lab, the CENSL, focuses on cognitive and emotional neural systems – and their overlap – in patients with psychiatric disorders as well as in healthy individuals. CENSL utilizes highly sensitive neurophysiological and neurocognitive methods. A major area of focus for this work is in psychotic disorders, Dr. Keedy’s area of expertise, including schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and bipolar disorder. CENSL also currently supports work in aggression, personality, anxiety, eating disorders, HIV, development, and other areas.

Neuroimaging Core

The CENSL Neuroimaging Core (CENSL-NC) is a group of academics, staff, and students led by Dr. Keedy. Collectively, they provide support for functional and structural MRI and EEG research for Dr. Keedy’s work and for her collaborators. Collaborators include all faculty in the Clinical Neuroscience and Psychopharmacology Research Unit in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, where CENSL is housed, as well as other faculty in Psychiatry, Psychology, Medicine, and beyond. CENSL-NC support includes task development consultation and programming, training on practical aspects of data acquisition and analysis, or direct provision of analysis, data interpretation, and manuscript or grant preparation.
