Research Interests: Dr. Steinhauer’s Biometrics Research Program is devoted to understanding physiological correlates of cognition in individuals with and without psychopathology. Brain activity is assessed through measurement of pupil dilation, event-related potentials (ERPs), including P300, N400, and very late slow waves, electrocardiography (ECG),and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
Specific clinical populations of interest have included patients with schizophrenia, depression, alcohol abuse, PTSD, and exposure to toxic solvents. The program at the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System is affiliated with the Department of Psychiatry, School of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh.
