UC San Diego Functional Neuroscience Lab

Developing Direct Brain Treatments

Welcome to the Functional Neuroscience Lab! Our research program is devoted to developing direct brain treatments that target neural networks, rather than symptoms in neuropsychiatric disorders. In our current studies, we are studying the effects of EEG-Neurofeedback on working memory in individuals with schizophrenia and those with mild cognitive impairment.

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback is a form of self-regulation. It provides a participant with current information regarding his/her brain activity.

Our team is working hard to abide by all of UC San Diego's health regulations, allowing us to continue our research through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Participant safety is ensured through daily screening questions before entering the lab site, wearing masks at all times, and frequent cleaning of all materials and areas used during the session.

As of now, our lab is administering EEG-Neurofeedback to individuals with schizophrenia and mild cognitive impairment (MCI). The study is a part of a larger effort within the UCSD Mental Health Technology Center to leverage technological innovations in mental health treatment.
