Emotion Waves: From Everyday Reactions to Psychiatric Intervention

Greg Siegle, PhD Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Translational Sciences, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

Our Meet the PI lecture series continues on October 4, 2019 when we will feature the research of Greg Siegle, PhD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Translational Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

Dr. Siegle directs the Program in Cognitive Affective Neuroscience (PICAN) at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. His research examines neural mechanisms of emotional and cognitive information processing in mood and anxiety disorders, how this information can be used to predict response to treatment and to guide novel treatment development. He works to translate cognitive and emotional neuroscience for use in the real world. Dr. Siegle has produced over 150 publications and has been continuously funded by awards from the National Institutes of Health and private foundations for over 18 years.

  1. Understand neural mechanisms of everyday emotional reactions including getting very upset and becoming numb or shutting down

  2. Describe about how these mechanisms may translate to psychopathology

  3. Understand about how novel behavioral interventions may target these mechanisms
