About Colleen A. Brenner, PhD

Dr. Colleen Brenner is a licensed clinical psychologist in California and the director of the Brain Potential Laboratory at Loma Linda University. Her primary research interests focus on the integration of sensory and cognitive functioning in both healthy individuals and those with serious mental illness. She has a burgeoning interest in investigating the neural underpinnings of resilience and overall health and wellness in these populations. Dr. Brenner approaches these issues using multiple-methods: electroencephalography (EEG), neuropsychological functioning, behavioral testing and self-report. A few current areas of interest include neural synchrony associated with self-referential processing, the effect of neural synchrony in those with dementia, and the neural patterns associated with hallucinations and hallucination-like experiences in schizophrenia, those high on schizotypal traits, and regular cannabis users.
