Violence Prevention Neurobiological Research Unit

What Do We Do?

The Violence Prevention Neurobiological Research Unit, led by Dr. Nathan Kolla, uses an array of neuroimaging techniques to study the neural correlates of violence and aggression in psychiatric populations. Our main focus is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in people with psychopathy, schizophrenia and/or personality disorders.
