Glenn Wylie is the Director of the Rocco Ortenzio Neuroimaging Center at Kessler Foundation. He is also the acting Director of Research at the War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC) at the Department for Veteran's Affairs, and an Associate Professor at Rutgers - New Jersey Medical School.

Dr. Wylie received his BSc at Dalhousie University, supervised by Dr. Raymond Klein, and his DPhil at Oxford University supervised by Drs. Alan Allport and Chris Frith. He has published over 80 articles and book chapters in peer-reviewed publications. He regularly presents his research findings at national and international conferences, and has received grant funding from Federal sources (the NIH and the VA), from state commissions (the New Jersey Commission for Brain Injury Research and Spinal Cord Injury Research) as well as from foundations such as the National MS Society.

Research Interests

Dr. Wylie's research interests fall into three broad categories: cognitive control, cognitive fatigue, and the neurophysiological effects of cognitive interventions. In his work investigating cognitive control, he has investigated control processes in healthy samples (both the young and the aged) and clinical samples (multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia). In his work investigating cognitive fatigue, he has investigated the neural correlates of fatigue in clinical samples such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI), as well as in Veterans with Gulf War Illness (GWI).

In his work investigating the neurophysiological effects of cognitive interventions, he has investigated the functional changes in the brain associated with interventions such as exercise, and interventions designed to improve memory. In order to better understand these processes, he employs several of the tools of cognitive neuroscience including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), event-related potentials (ERPs), functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), positron emission tomography (PET), and behavioral measures.
