Robert M.G. Reinhart, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences (primary)
Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering (secondary)
Boston University

Dr. Reinhart completed his Ph.D. at Vanderbilt University, forwent postdoctoral training, and accepted an appointment at Boston University in 2016, where he is currently the Director of the Cognitive & Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory (Reinhart Lab) and on the faculty in the Departments of Psychological & Brain Sciences and Biomedical Engineering.

Rob’s research primarily uses electrophysiological measurements of brain activity, computational modeling, noninvasive neuromodulation, and behavioral tasks to investigate the mechanisms of visual perception and cognition in healthy younger and older adults and people with neuropsychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia. His research includes the development of improved noninvasive neuromodulation methods for the repair of neural and behavioral functions in people with schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive behaviors, and age-related cognitive impairment. Rob receives federal and private funding (including T32, F31, and R01 mechanisms) and the 2022 Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
