Psychology

Nader Amir

(MBRS Alumni: Kristen Frosio)

Professor
Program Area: Experimental Psychopathology (emphasis on anxiety disorders)
Research Interests: Specifically, he is interested in studying information-processing biases that may lead to the maintenance, and possibly the development of, anxiety disorders. To this end, he has used various paradigms that examine cognitive disturbances (e.g., attentional bias, implicit and explicit memory bias, interpretation bias) in anxious patients and normal individuals with elevated trait anxiety. This research has culminated in a theory of social anxiety that focuses on abnormalities in inhibition and activation of threat-relevant information in these individuals

Linda Gallo

(MBRS Student: Annalia Valdivia)

Professor
Program Area: Clinical Psychology
Research Interests: Dr. Gallo’s research focuses on psychosocial and behavioral processes in chronic disease risks and outcomes and on socioeconomic status and ethnicity-related health inequities. Much of her research applies a multi-level, inter-disciplinary, bio-psychosocial approach, incorporating macro level factors such as social status and ethnicity, individual and family level psychological and social factors, and biological mechanisms and indicators of health and disease (e.g., subclinical assessments of atherosclerosis; ambulatory blood pressure; inflammatory markers).

Ralph-Axel Müller

(MBRS Alumni: Omar Maximo)

Professor
Program Area: Cognitive Science
Research Interests: We study functional and anatomical brain development in neurotypical children and those with developmental disorders (especially autism). Research applies multimodal magnetic resonance imaging techniques (functional and functional connectivity MRI, anatomical volumetrics, diffusion tensor imaging and tractography, MR spectroscopy), as well as eye-tracking, behavioral, and neuropsychological measures.

Research Interests: Research interests are varied, but center on the relationship of the brain to behavior. There are several research projects investigating normal function and function in impaired populations: Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease, Down’s Syndrome, the elderly, head trauma patients, normal children, children with head trauma, and whatever new populations become available to provide a window to the functioning of the brain.
