Keynote Speaker: Dr. Johanna Jarcho, Temple University
Dr. Jarcho’s research program bridges the areas of social, developmental, and cognitive neuroscience to study how social processes evolve during adolescence and change across the lifespan. She uses developmental psychopathology as a theoretical framework to examine how such processes manifest in typically developing adolescents and adults, and those with, or at risk for, psychopathology. She tests the effects of learning, attention, and affective states on pro- and anti-social behavior, and how this behavior relates to brain function during positive and negative social experiences. She is also interested in disentangling the neural mechanisms implicated in reward and threat processing during positive and negative social and non-social experiences.
Dr. Jarcho is an Assistant Professor of Psychology with a joint appointment in Brain & Cognitive Sciences and Social Psychology at Temple University. She completed her B.A. in Psychology from UCLA, where she also obtained her Ph.D. in Social Psychology. After a post-doctoral fellowship in the Section on Development and Affective Neuroscience at the NIMH, she was an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Stony Brook University.
