"Lawrence Appelbaum"

Greg Appelbaum is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego. He received a B.A in Psychology from Emory University in 1995, and a Masters and Ph.D. from the Department of Cognitive Science at the University of California, Irvine in 2002 and 2004, respectively.

At UCSD, Dr. Appelbaum heads the Human Performance Optimization lab (Opti Lab), an applied neuroscience laboratory that researches innovative approaches for accelerating learning and remediating psychiatric and neurological deficits. This research utilizes behavioral psychometrics and multiple complimentary human neuroimaging (e.g. fMRI, EEG, fNIRS) and neurostimulation (e.g. TMS, ECT) techniques to understand the interplay of perception, attention, memory and motor control. As a faculty, he research has been continually funded by grant awards from DARPA, NIH, and the Army Research Office, leading to over 80 published articles and book sections.
