Dr. Carissa Philippi, assistant professor of psychology at the University of Missouri-St. Louis will present the psychology colloquium 1-1:50 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, in Room 318 Butler-Carlton Civil Engineering Hall. Her talk is titled “Neural and Behavioral Correlates of Self-Related Thought in Psychiatric Conditions.”
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, Philippi will present findings from studies using behavioral tasks and neuroimaging to examine negative self-appraisal in depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. More broadly, she will discuss how these findings relate to dimensional approaches to mental health and how they may help inform targeted clinical interventions.
