  • ABOUT US

    Founded in 1955, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) is one of the nation’s premier institutions for medical education, basic research
    and clinical investigation. A full-time faculty of some 2,000 conducts research, teaches, and delivers health care in every major biomedical specialty.
    The college has some 730 medical students, 193 Ph.D. students, 106 MD/Ph.D. students and 275 postdoctoral fellows.
    Einstein’s major strength, in addition to training physicians and scientists, is its science. During fiscal year 2015, the faculty’s consistently high level of scientific achievement resulted in the awarding of more than $150 million in peer-reviewed grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
    Einstein is part of Montefiore Medicine Academic Health System, an integrated academic delivery system comprising seven campuses, including 8 hospitals, a multi-county ambulatory network, a new state-of-the art “hospital without beds”, a skilled nursing facility, school of nursing, home health agency, and the state’s first freestanding emergency department. As the University Hospital for the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore is a premier academic health system, employing Einstein’s clinical faculty and training Einstein’s medical students, over 1,300 residents, 420 allied health students, and 1,600 nursing students annually.

    The Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory is comprised of a multidisciplinary team of investigators, post-doctoral fellows, and students using psychophysics, EEG, and MRI to study attention, auditory and visual perception, multisensory processing, and executive function, in typical and clinical populations. It is our goal to make significant advances in understanding these processes with the use of cutting edge methodologies and data analytic techniques. In turn, we seek to apply this understanding to explore the processing deficits underlying clinical and developmental disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, and drug addiction.
