Molly Erickson

Assistant Professor
Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Erickson’s program of research is focused on understanding the neural mechanisms that give rise to sensory and early cognitive impairment in schizophrenia, with a larger aim to understand how early abnormalities impact cognitive domains that are important for functional outcome and overall quality of life.  In pursuit of these aims, Dr. Erickson’s research includes the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and behavioral paradigms to understand basic neural and psychological processes associated with visual attention and working memory impairment among this patient population.  Additional areas of interest include the use of EEG to measure abnormalities in network organization during rest, as well as to understand the role of the glutamate signaling system in disrupted prediction formation and cognition more broadly.
