Dr. Cobia is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Brigham Young University. He directs a lab focused on the implementation of computational anatomy tools to study neuropsychiatric diseases, particularly schizophrenia. His interests are in the clinical and biological heterogeneity that exists in schizophrenia by taking a cognitive neuroscience perspective. His work has involved linking cognitive and neurobiological characteristics to important clinical dimensions (e.g., negative symptoms) of the illness. Dr. Cobia also studies a rare language-based dementia known as Primary Progressive Aphasia.
Dr. Cobia has served on SCN’s Education Advisory Committee for over 4 years. Currently his lab is involved in training and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students in neuroimaging and cognitive neuroscience methodology. Previously he was Associate Director of Clinical Training in the Clinical Psychology PhD Program at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, and supervised postdoctoral trainees at Northwestern Medicine.
