Principal Investigator (PI):
Jeremy Hogeveen, PhD: Before starting as an Assistant Professor of Psychology at UNM in 2018, Jeremy trained across three countries including Canada (Wilfrid Laurier University, PI: Sukhvinder Obhi), the United Kingdom (Birkbeck College, PIs: Geoffrey Bird & Clare Press), and the United States (Northwestern University, PI: Jordan Grafman; University of California–Davis, PI: Marjorie Solomon). Jeremy's research investigates the cognitive and affective neuroscience of psychopathology. Specifically, his primary interests focus on the neural circuits underlying emotional awareness, motivated decision making, and cognitive control in both healthy and pathological populations. Beyond research, Jeremy likes to run, listen to records, support the Toronto Maple Leafs, cook/eat good food, and hang out with his wife, toddler, and two dogs.
Ethan Campbell: Ethan graduated in 2017 from Centre College with a B.S. in Behavioral Neuroscience. He'll be joining the lab in Fall, 2019 from the University of Kentucky where he worked as a clinical research assistant in behavioral pharmacology. Ethan's research interests include the neural representations of emotion regulation and decision-making processes that manifest in psychopathology and other conditions including substance use disorders, mood disorders, and traumatic brain injury. Ethan is also interested in how neuroimaging and neuromodulation can be used to inform treatment outcomes for these populations. In his free time he enjoys playing music, reading, and doing trivia.
Teagan Mullins: Teagan has been working as a research assistant in Dr. Vince Clark’s lab where she worked on neurostimulation and cognitive enhancement. She graduated from Vanderbilt University with a M.Ed. in Special Education where she worked on creating and implementing a comprehensive intervention for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders. She completed her B.A. from NYU in psychology with a minor in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies. Teagan’s research interests include examining biomarkers of Autism and other developmental psychopathology through fMRI, as well as examining co-morbidities and looking at transdiagnostic features. Outside of the lab, Teagan enjoys hanging out with her many pets, reading, rock climbing, and traveling.
Denicia Aragon: Denicia graduated from the University of New Mexico with a B.A. in Psychology and Political Science with a minor in Journalism. She is an El Puente de Encuentros Fellow and a McNair Scholar who completed her research under Dr. Vince Clark investigating non-invasive brain stimulation and cognition. Denicia is interested in Social Neuroscience and her research interest includes the role of emotion in decision-making with an emphasis on the neural basis of emotion. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, baking, and true crime podcasts.
Ebony Pearson: Ebony received her B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Linguistics from the University of Tennessee. As an undergraduate, she completed a clinical neuroscience internship providing comprehensive evaluation and treatment for those with cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative disorders. Ebony is currently a scholar with the NIH Postbaccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP). Her research interests include learning and memory, neuroimaging, and language processing. Apart from research, Ebony enjoys spending her time reading, cooking, and traveling.
John Romero: John is pursuing dual B.S. degrees in Psychology and Biology from the University of New Mexico with minors in Chemistry and Statistics. He joined Dr. Hogeveen’s lab in Fall 2019. John is broadly interested in the neural basis of attention and consciousness. He is also interested in programming and its utility in data analysis and the development of behavioral tasks. In the Hogeveen Lab, John aides in the collection and analysis of neuroimaging and behavioral data.
Kimberly Rogge-Obando: Kim is a Chemical Engineering Student at the University of New Mexico and has joined the Hogeveen-team Spring 2019. She has past research experience in behavioral modeling anxiety in rodents and Alzheimer’s disease. Her interests are identifying the physiological manifestations in neuropathology using fMRI or MEG methodologies. In Dr. Hogeveen’s lab, Kim is assisting in neuroimaging data collection and analysis.
Jonathan Goss: Jonathan was super helpful during his time in the lab and left us with a 'k-armed Bandit' task script that will serve the lab well for years to come!
Donna Bacon: Donna knew way more about Freesurfer than Dr. Hogeveen, so it was excellent having her in the lab to help set up standard processes for editing segmentations.
Breannan Howell: Brie was the first RA in the lab and we would have failed MISERABLY without her tireless efforts getting protocols approved and data collection off the ground.
Elizabeth Eversole: Elyse was a huge help during her time in the lab, taking the lead on recruitment and data collection on one of our main fMRI projects. More importantly, she brought art to the lab by tagging the white board–as long as the cleaning staff leave it it will never be untagged!
