Alan Anticevic PhD
Associate Research Scientist in Psychiatry; Administrative Director, NIAAA Center for the Translational Neuroscience of Alcoholism
Dr. Alan Anticevic trained in Clinical Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis where he worked with Drs. Deanna Barch and David Van Essen. Following his graduate training, Dr. Anticevic completed his internship in Clinical Neuropsychology at Yale University. Following internship, he joined the Yale University Department of Psychiatry as research faculty working closely with Dr. John Krystal.
Broadly, his research interests are centered on cognitive neuroscience of psychiatric illness as well as functional neuroimaging analysis methodology. Specifically, Dr. Anticevic is interested in characterizing brain circuits involved in processing affective stimuli and their interaction with neural systems involved in goal-directed cognitive operations such as working memory, with the focus on understanding how these interactions may go awry in the context of different neuropsychiatric illness (e.g. schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and substance abuse). Methodologically, his research harnesses the combination of task-based, resting-state, pharmacological functional neuroimaging, as well as computational modeling approaches to mechanistically understand neural circuit dysfunction in disorders such as schizophrenia.
