Community Advisory Council

December 12 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

| Free

Our guest speaker is Sophia Vinogradov, MD. She is the department Head of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota where she directs a translational clinical neuroscience laboratory that focuses on cognitive dysfunction in schizophrenia. In collaboration with basic scientists, she studies neuroscience-informed computerized cognitive training exercises for patients with schizophrenia that aim to drive enduring plastic changes in cortical processing. More recently, she has begun to apply these methods to the study of adolescents who are prodromal for schizophrenia and young adults in early psychosis, with the goal of delaying or preventing the onset of a deteriorating psychiatric illness. Her work has contributed to a growing interest in the use of computerized “brain training” to treat some of the brain information processing abnormalities of psychiatric illnesses, and she was a participant at the White House conference on “Video Games to Enhance Attention and Well-Being.”
