Jonathan Cohen

Former Fellows

Jonathan Cohen is currently Professor of Psychology at Princeton University and Co-Director of Princeton Neuroscience Institute. He is also Professor of Psychiatry at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic of the University of Pittsburgh.

Research in Cohen’s laboratory focuses on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying cognitive control, and their disturbance in psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression. An important motivation for this work is the development of a theoretically sound foundation for research on the relationship between disturbances of brain function and their manifestation as disorders of thought and behavior in psychiatric illness.
