Research programs in Park's lab focus on understanding neurobiological bases of psychoses. We use diverse methods and techniques including cognitive tasks, functional MRI, structural MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, near-infrared optical imaging and hormonal assays to understand the complex relationship between behavior, brain structure and function. Current projects in the lab focus on elucidating cognitive-perceptual and affective functions in schizophrenia, neurobiological underpinnings of creativity, effects of cannabis on attention and emotion and sex differences.
