Research and Teaching Interests
Our lab examines emotional information processing in mood disorders, schizophrenia and normal populations utilizing neurophysiological measures. The goal of my research work is to understand the relationship between the brain, emotion, cognition and behavior in psychopathology. My primary research program involves a series of recently completed and planned emotional information processing studies designed to distinguish memory, attention, and expectancy dysfunction in major depressives, dysthymics and controls. ERP, fMRI and behavioral studies provide complementary portraits of cognitive and emotional processing associated with depression.
