Research Interests

Dr. Winters is a biological psychologist who has conducted research in several areas including, single cell electrophysiological studies in the visual system, and single cell and neuroanatomical tracing studies of the emotional systems that underlie cardiovascular reactions to stress. Dr. Winters current research efforts focus on the neurobiology of bipolar disorder and depression. These studies, conducting in collaboration with Dr. Sheri Johnson, seek to determine the role of the central nervous system's (CNS) behavioral activation system and anxiety system in bipolar disorder and depression, and to assess the contribution of CNS mechanisms underlying emotion regulation to these disorders.
