Dr. Schweitzer's interests include the identification and treatment of attention-deficit/ hyperactivity (ADHD) and related disorders in children and adults using behavioral/neuropsychological and functional neuroimaging methods. Other interests include the use of reinforcement and learning paradigms in imaging as applied to psychopathology. Dr. Schweitzer's goal is to apply translational research methods using a variety of basic behavioral and physiological techniques to develop novel treatment and preventative approaches to addressing attentional disorders. Additional funded collaborative work includes projects testing the effects of:

  • Prenatal drug exposure on adolescent brain function and behavior development and
  • Schizophrenia on reinforcement and learning impairments via fMRI and behavior
