Kurt Schulz, PhD
- ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR | Psychiatry
Dr. Schulz graduated from Hunter College of the City University of New York with a B.A. in Psychology and received his Ph.D. in Neuropsychology from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. His graduate research focused on the neurochemical and neuroendocrine bases of childhood disruptive behavior disorders. Dr. Schulz was subsequently appointed to a postdoctoral fellowship on a NIMH-funded Interdisciplinary Research Network on Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and completed two years of training in functional neuroimaging under the mentorship of Drs. Jin Fan, Jeffrey Newcorn, and Jeffrey Halperin.
Dr. Schulz is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. He has been using functional magnetic imaging resonance (fMRI) techniques to investigate self-regulatory mechanisms in children and adolescents with ADHD, as well as the effects of pharmacological treatments on these mechanisms. Dr. Schulz's main research interest lies in understanding the neurobiological mechanisms responsible for the developmental change, remission, and escalation of symptomatology commonly seen in childhood psychiatric disorders.
