What We Do

The Hershey lab works in the fields of cognitive and clinical neuroscience, using a range of neuroimaging, pharmacological and cognitive techniques to understand the impact of metabolic and neurodegenerative conditions on the brain, particularly during development.

We draw from numerous disciplines (neuroscience, radiology, endocrinology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology) to enhance the quality and clinical relevance of our research.

The Hershey lab sits within the highly collaborative environment of the Neuroimaging Labs (NIL), which is part of the division of Radiological Sciences within the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at the School of Medicine.

Dr. Hershey is Lab Chief of the NIL and a member of the Psychiatry, Neurology, Radiology and Psychological & Brain Sciences Departments.

Interested in our work? 

We take undergraduate, graduate and medical students and postdoctoral fellows into our lab.
