Active Research in the Department of Psychology
Our department specializes in health-related research that spans health psychology, pediatric health psychology, behavioral neuroscience, neuropsychology, and the social psychology of health.
Current active research interests of our faculty include medically unexplained symptoms, psychosocial oncology, behavioral neuroscience, attention & emotion, cognitive neuroscience of affect, transgenic & gene-knockout models of Alzheimer's Disease, measurement of patient outcomes in psychotherapy, models of and treatment for nicotine addiction, patient progress feedback to therapists, linguistic markers of psychological processes in therapy, and statistical methodology.
