Description: *Adult Psychiatry Grand Rounds*

Charles E. Schroeder, PhD, obtained his BA from Ohio State University, and his MA and Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina. Dr. Schroeder is Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University. He is the Director of The Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging Laboratory (CNNL) at the Nathan S. Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research.

The laboratory has two specific goals. The first is to use nonhuman primates to investigate the neural mechanisms of sensory and cognitive processes using methods that allow us to relate the functioning of single neurons and groups of neurons to that of the brain as a whole. The second is to define the precise neural structures, brain circuits and physiological/pharmacological processes that are indexed by the noninvasive ERP and fMRI measures used to study both normal and dysfunctional processing in humans.

The studies are focused mainly on normal functioning, but the laboratory also investigates specific mechanistic models and hypotheses concerning neural dysfunction in schizophrenia. He has been the Chair of the NIH Cognitive Neuroscience (COG) Study Section and is currently a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Neuroscience.

He is the author of more than 60 publications and is an investigator of a dozen current grants from NIH, NIMH, NIDCD, and NINDS.
