    Tiffany Shader

Fourth-year graduate student

email: shader.4@buckeyemail.osu.edu


Research Interests


I am interested in the causes and correlates of externalizing behavioral disorders among children and adolescents, particularly intermittent explosive disorder (IED), which is new to the DSM5. I enjoy our lab’s research because of our focus on developmental psychopathology, our combined use of psychophysiology and behavioral measures, and our use of advanced statistical methods.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in identifying biological vulnerabilities (neural, physiological) and social risk factors that contribute to psychopathology in children and adolescents. I use psychophysiological methods as a means for bridging behavioral, psychological, and biological perspectives of mental health and illness. In my current research, I am investigating neural correlates of impulsivity and emotion regulation in pediatric bipolar disorder, depression, and non-suicidal self-injury using fMRI.

Research Interests

I am interested in the use of psychophysiological, behavioral, and neuroimaging methods to better understand psychopathology across development in children and adolescents. My current research focuses on the relationships between psychophysiology, parent-child interactions, and externalizing behaviors.
   

Former Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Fellows

  Jiancheng Hou, Ph.D.

email: hou.254@osu.edu

Research Interests


Jiancheng Hou studied cognitive neuroscience during his doctoral training and received his Ph.D. from the State Key Lab of Cognitive Neuroscience and Learning, Beijing Normal University in 2012. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Texas Tech University from 2012-2014. He is now a postdoctoral researcher at the Ohio State University and works with Dr. Beauchaine. His interests include emotion regulation, personality disorder, music cognition, and therapy. He is very good at task-based and resting-state fMRI, structural MRI, and TBSS in DTI.
