Research

Dr. Huey is interested in the interface between psychiatry and neurology -- the behavioral, cognitive and emotional effects of neurological disorders and what we can learn about psychiatric disorders from patients with neuroanatomic and genetic disorders.

Dr. Huey's research has focused on patients with frontal lobe disorders, including patients with frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) and related disorders such as corticobasal syndrome and ALS, and brain injury. He studies the genetics of FTLD and is interested in the range of behavioral and emotional symptoms associated with mutations that cause FTLD. He also uses imaging in patients with frontal lobe disorders to explore the role of the frontal lobes in behavior and emotion, and the development of psychiatric disorders including mood disorders, PTSD, and OCD. A third interest is in the role of the dopamine system in the pathogenesis and treatment of the symptoms of FTLD. He is the recipient of a NIH / NINDS Pathway to Independence Award to research novel medication treatments and imaging biomarkers for FTLD.
