Headshot Heather Horton

Heather Horton's research centers on cognition and schizophrenia. She studies how neurocognitive factors, such as attention and memory and social-cognitive factors, such as facial affect processing and theory of mind, influence adaptive outcomes among people with serious mental illness. She is also interested in issues related to language and thought in the context of a dependence on visual-spatial information and linguistic processing.
