Biosketch:

Steven graduated with a B.S. in Psychology from Barrett the Honors College at Arizona State University. In collaboration with the Conte Center at UCI, he is interested in the development of non-invasive imaging biomarkers for Depression using a number of different imaging techniques including structural, functional, and diffusion MRI. Steven is interested in how early life environment might shape the structure and function of specific neural networks possibly predisposing one to develop Depression. Finally, Steven is interested in the neurobiology of emotional memory systems (emotional pattern separation) and how differences in these processes change with symptom severity in the healthy, clinical, and aged population.
