Research Interests
Dr. Davenport is a full-time researcher at the Minneapolis VA Health Care System and holds faculty appointments in the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology at the University of Minnesota. The majority of his research over the past two decades has been focused on the role of brain structure, function, and circuitry in the development of, and recovery from, mental health conditions. By integrating neuroimaging methods (e.g., EEG, MRI) with clinical characteristics (e.g., symptom profiles, neuropsychological performance), Dr. Davenport's research has contributed to improved understanding of a range of conditions, including schizophrenia, ADHD, PTSD, and TBI. Dr. Davenport is currently conducting studies investigating long-term effects of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) on measures of cognition, brain connectivity, and somatic symptoms.
