Dr. Carter’s clinical interest is in the early diagnosis and treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders. His research focuses on understanding the neural basis of healthy cognition and the pathophysiology of disturbances in higher cognition and emotion in patients with brain and behavior disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and autism. He hopes to provide new understanding of the nature and causes of these disorders and, as a result, contribute to the development of therapies that can improve patients’ chances of recovering their functioning and improving their quality of life. His work reflects the latest in neuroimaging and electrophysiology technology.

Prior to assuming a professor position at UC Davis in 2003, Dr. Carter worked at the University of Pittsburgh for 10 years.
