Contact: Glenn Wylie
Glenn Wylie is the Associate Director of both the Neuroimaging Center and Neuropsychology and Neuroscience Research at Kessler Foundation. He is also a Research Scientist at the Department for Veteran's Affairs, and an Associate Professor at Rutgers - New Jersey Medical School.
His research interests fall into three broad categories: cognitive control, cognitive fatigue, and the neurophysiological effects of cognitive interventions. In his work in 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 in cognitive fatigue, he has investigated the neural correlates of fatigue in both multiple sclerosis (MS) and in traumatic brain injury (TBI). In his work investigating the neurophysiological effects of cognitive interventions, he has investigated the functional changes in the brain associated with an intervention designed to improve memory and more recently with exercise. In a similar vein, he is also investigating the neurophysiological changes that accompany recovery from a TBI over the first year. 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.
