Title: Neural and Behavioral Correlates of Self-Related Thought in Psychiatric Conditions
Date/Time: Tuesday, Nov 6, 1:00-1:50pm
Location: Butler-Carlton 318

Abstract: A core feature of several psychiatric conditions is heightened self-related thought, often consisting of repetitive thoughts focused on overly negative aspects about oneself, such as feelings of worthlessness and self-blame. In this talk, I will present findings from studies using behavioral tasks and neuroimaging to examine negative self-appraisal in depression and posttraumatic stress disorder. More broadly, I will discuss how these findings relate to dimensional approaches to mental health and how they may help inform targeted clinical interventions.
