Pioneering neuroscientist Joy Hirsch has focused her research on developing ways to image human brain activity during performance of complex behaviors. Her ground-breaking studies of language, emotion, attention, and cognition are internationally known for advances in our understanding of how separate neural systems interact during these functions. In addition, Hirsch and her students have developed methods to apply brain mapping to the medical benefit of patients with psychiatric conditions, chronic pain, and neurosurgical procedures. She is currently studying cognitive processes during unconscious states, addiction, obesity and eating disorders, anxiety, and autism.
