Professor Hugh Garavan

Adjunct Associate Professor (Psychology)

 


My primary degree was in Psychology from University College Dublin which I completed in 1990. I then moved to the USA, to Bowling Green State University in Ohio where I completed my PhD in 1995 under the supervision of Michael Doherty. My thesis was a study of attentional processes in working memory and demonstrated that there in an limit of just one item to which we can attend within working memory. Next, I moved to Cornell University in Ithaca, New York where I studied the effects of perinatal lead and prenatal cocaine exposure on cognitive abilities in a rodent model. In 1997, I started a postdoc with Elliot Stein at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. It was there that I started neuroimaging research on cocaine users. I took a lecturer position in Trinity College Dublin in 2000, was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2005 and an Associate Professor in 2007. I was elected a Fellow of TCD in 2004 and was the first Director of Functional Imaging in the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (2003 - 2006). I will be the Director of Undergraduate Learning and Teaching for 2010-2012. I also have appointments at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Wisconsin and the Nathan Kline Institute in New York.
