Welcome to the MAPS Lab

At the Memory and Perception in Schizophrenia (MAPS) Laboratory, we are interested in understanding the neural mechanisms that give rise to sensory and low-level cognitive impairment in people with schizophrenia, with a larger aim to understand how these abnormalities impact cognitive domains that are important for functional outcome and overall quality of life.  In pursuit of these aims, our program of research involves the use of electroencephalography (EEG) and behavioral testing paradigms to understand the neural and psychological processes associated with visual attention and working memory impairment in this patient population.

We are always looking for study volunteers!  If you have an interest in being a research participant, call one of our team members at (773) 245-6887.  You can also e-mail the lab at ucmapslaboratory@gmail.com and a team member will be in contact with you shortly.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer research assistant, we will be accepting applications three times annually (deadlines of August 15, December 15, and April 15). Please visit the Student Volunteers page for more information on the application process for joining the MAPS Lab. 

Dr. Erickson is now accepting applications for postdoctoral for research fellows beginning  summer 2021. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Erickson directly at merickson1@uchicago.edu.
