Amy Winecoff is a fourth year graduate student in Psychology and Neuroscience. She studies aspects of social and affective behavior and the neural mechanisms that underlie these functions. In one of her major research areas, Amy explored how regions of the brain associated with reward processing respond to emotional information and how these responses are altered by conscious emotion regulation. Amy’s other research focus involves elucidating the relationship between changes in reward system function and altered social behavior in individuals with eating disorders.
