Matt Hudgens-Haney

Undergraduate: B.A. Philosophy, University of Alabama

Graduate Program: M.A. Neurophilosophy (2010), Georgia State University, Department of Philosophy

In Progress: Ph.D. Cognitive Neuroscience (Expected 2015), UGA Biomedical and Health Sciences Institute

Current research interests: I am interested in the mechanisms by which high level cognitive functions or deficits might be dependent on lower level sensory processing. My master's research focused on deficits in the development of "mindreading" in children with autism and the relation between the development of this cognitive ability and the sensory system. Currently, I am using EEG and MEG to study the relationship between cognitive and sensory processing in a variety of populations, including pathological gambling and narcissism. My primary projects examine 1) excess neural noise as a function of cognitive control requirements in schizophrenia and 2) voluntary saccadic behavior as an endophenotype for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
