He is the member of a laboratory focused on the development and implementation of computational anatomy tools in studying neuropsychatric diseases, particularly schizophrenia. Dr. Cobia’s interests are in the clinical and biological heterogeneity that exists in schizophrenia by taking a cognitive neuroscience perspective. His work has involved linking cognitive and neurobiological characteristics to important clinical dimensions (e.g., negative symptoms) of the illness.

As a clinical neuropsychologist, Dr. Cobia evaluates the cognitive functioning of individuals with various brain injuries and illnesses, including adult ADHD, autoimmune disorders, hepatic encephalopathy, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, tumors, as well as the influence of psychiatric illness on cognition.[Shorten text]
