Assistant Lab Director

Einat Liebenthal, DSc, is a cognitive neuroscientist, and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. She is a Principal Investigator and the Associate Director of the Functional Neuroimaging and Bioinformatics Lab in the Institute for Technology in Psychiatry at McLean Hospital. She studies verbal and non-verbal communication, using digital measures of behavior and multimodal neuroimaging methods. Her work has contributed to understanding the functional organization of the human brain for spoken language perception, and the abnormal interactions of language and emotion neurocircuits in psychotic disorders. Dr. Liebenthal’s research is supported by the NIH/NIDCD and the Brain & Behavior Foundation.
