Associate Professor of Translational Neuroscience

Carla Harenski

Dr. Harenski studies the neuroscience of mental health conditions that are related to criminal behavior. She has led several federally-funded research projects that use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate social and emotional processing in criminal offenders characterized by psychopathic personality and other externalizing conditions and behaviors. This research is conducted in incarcerated populations, which is made possible with the Mind Research Network’s mobile MRI system and partnerships with correctional facilities across New Mexico and other states.
