Jeremy D. Cohen, Ph.D.

Jeremy Cohen, PhD is currently Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Xavier University of Louisiana. He is also the Director of the Neuroscience Program within the Department of Psychology. Dr. Cohen completed undergraduate studies in Cell and Molecular Biology at Tulane University. He continued his studies at Tulane University, where he graduated with a PhD in Neuroscience. His graduate work focused on studying brain anatomy related to persistent developmental stuttering. Dr. Cohen went on to complete fellowship training in Stanford University in the Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research within the Psychiatry Department at the Stanford School of Medicine. At Stanford University his research focused on brain structure and functional substrates of anxiety and depression in developmental populations. His current focus is structural and functional brain networks related to emotion, autonomic function, and self-awareness. Dr. Cohen has won many awards including a National Institutes of Mental Health Research Fellowship, and the Robert Sharp Scholarship at Tulane University. He was a recipient of a Louisiana Board of Regents Grant recipient in support of his graduate studies at Tulane University.
