Research Interests

Dr. Kozel's primary research goal is to study the function of the human brain in order to better understand and treat people who suffer from devastating psychiatric illnesses. The focus of his research is to use brain imaging and brain stimulation to investigate and treat mood and anxiety disorders. Advances in brain imaging techniques are now affording us the opportunity to non-invasively investigate the function [Functional MRI (fMRI) and Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS)] and structure [high resolution MRI and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)] of different parts of the brain in health and disease. Improving the lives of patients who are unfortunate enough to suffer from a mental illness is the ultimate goal. An additional area of investigation for Dr. Kozel is using functional brain imaging to detect deception.
