About Dr. Clementz’s Research
Understanding neural circuitries that support sensory processing as a function of context in both health and disease. This involves discerning how neural activities in a “controlled” system (e.g. sensory cortices) are influenced by a “controlling” system (e.g. prefrontal cortex). With EEG, MEG, and eye movement paradigms, this work investigates sensory registration, ability to bias sensory input given situational demands, attentional selection, and ability to appropriately manipulate sensory information to select context-appropriate responses. Primary focus is deviations in brain functioning associated with psychosis.

This seminar is a apart of the Neuroscience Spring 2015 Seminar Series.  For more information, contact Jesse Schank at jschank@uga.edu.
