Lawrence Sweet examines brain-behavior relationships in clinical populations (e.g., Multiple Sclerosis, nicotine dependence, dementia, heart failure) using cognitive and affective neuroscience techniques, particularly multimodal neuroimaging and neuropsychological assessments. Dr. Sweet's FMRI work includes experimental design, data analyses, paradigm development, and assessment of clinically relevant constructs (e.g., objective assessments of subjective states, prediction of treatment outcome).

Biography

Lawrence Sweet examines brain-behavior relationships in clinical populations using cognitive and affective neuroscience techniques, particularly multimodal neuroimaging and neuropsychological assessments.

Research Description

Lawrence Sweet, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior in the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Director of the Butler Hospital Neuroimaging Center (NIC). Dr. Sweet examines brain-behavior relationships among clinical populations using multi-sequence structural and functional neuroimaging methods. His FMRI work also focuses on experimental design, data analyses, and paradigm development. Dr. Sweet has developed FMRI paradigms designed to objectively assess clinically relevant constructs, such as cognitive processing speed, working memory, craving, decision-making, impulsivity, effort, and fatigue. He is also developing clinical applications, such as the use of baseline FMRI assessments to predict treatment outcome. A primary goal of his research is the identification and application of sensitive neuroimaging markers associated with the earliest stages of brain dysfunction. Recent projects include FMRI studies of cognitive function among patients diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, nicotine dependence, sleep apnea, cardiovascular disease, and dementia.
