Dr. Vincent P. Clark History

Dr. Clark is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience. He has 30 years of experience in human brain research. His training started with an honors degree from the program in Psychobiology at UCLA, using magnetoencephalography, then as a research assistant in the Brain Research Institute at UCLA, where he worked with epileptic patients who had implanted electrodes before surgery, and also used positron emission tomography.

He then trained as a graduate student in the Program in Neurosciences at UC San Diego. In graduate school he develop a new method for using MRI to perform histological analysis of living human cortex, and using this to characterize specific brain regions identified using source localization methods with event-related potentials. After this he trained as a post doc in the Intramural Program in the National Institute of Mental Health. There he developed new methods for performing event-related functional MRI.

He moved to New Mexico in 2002 to help start the Mind Research Network. While MRN Science Director, extramural funding increased from less than $500,000 to more than $30 million. Dr. Clark was Science Director of the MRN until his son became ill. During this time he took a sabbatical and spent part of that time researching simpler technologies for medicine.

Now that his son has recovered, he has become Director of the newly formed Clinical Neuroscience Center in Psychology at the University of New Mexico. The CNC is focused on developing cheaper, safer and more effective diagnostic and treatment technologies to improve the quality of life for people who are suffering with brain and mental illness.
