Our 2020 annual report publication provides an overview of last year's happenings at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research. In the report below, you will find a letter from the president, Dr. Martin Paulus, information on our mission, history and specific aims, current areas of research, funding sources, events and lectures, awards, individual laboratories, selected publications and opportunities to participate in research. We hope you enjoy the publication and look forward to continuing our goal to improve mental health through neuroscience in 2021 and beyond.
Erin A. Hazlett, Ph.D. - March 4, 2021
"Studying Emotion Processing in Individuals at Risk for Suicide: Psychophysiological and Neuroimaging Approaches"
William K. Warren, Jr. Frontiers in Neuroscience Lecture
Virtual Presentation via Zoom
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST
Dr. Hazlett has a 5-year Research Career Scientist Award from Clinical Science Research and Development (CSR&D) which supports her full-time VA position. She is a member of the Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center (MIRECC VISN 2) at the James J. Peters VA Medical Center (JJPVA). Dr. Hazlett is also a professor in the Departments of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS). She is the Director of the Cognitive Psychophysiology Laboratory within both the Department of Psychiatry at ISMMS and the MIRECC at the JJPVA. Dr. Hazlett conducts collaborative clinical research using the new JJPVA state-of-the-art 3T Siemens Skyra magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner and also mentors MIRECC Advanced Psychology Fellows on cutting-edge clinical neuroimaging research.
Dr. Hazlett conducts multidisciplinary clinical research using neuroimaging and psychophysiological approaches to examine the neurobiology of psychiatric illness. She primarily examines the neurobiology of attention and emotion processing abnormalities in schizophrenia spectrum disorders, personality disorders, and major depressive disorder. She has received funding for her research from the Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, National Institutes of Mental Health, and private foundations (e.g., Brain & Behavior Research Foundation). Her current two VA Merit Award grants employ functional and structural fMRI and/or psychophysiology to examine emotion regulation and impulsivity in Veterans at low and high risk for suicide with and without mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI).
