Dr. Carter's clinical interest is the early diagnosis and treatment of schizophrenia and other cognitive mental disorders. His research focuses on the pathophysiology of disturbances in cognition in mental disorders such as schizophrenia and OCD, with the goal of developing more effective therapies which can improve patients' chances of rehabilitation. Dr. Carter is also involved in the development of new treatments for cognitive disability in schizophrenia and other brain disorders. A key element of the philosophy of his laboratory is that good clinical research can only proceed if it is being constantly informed by ongoing theoretical and methodological progress in basic cognitive neuroscience, and that the experiments of nature provided by clinical brain disorders may provide us with powerful additional insights into the neural basis of normal cognition.
