Scott Blain

Graduate Student: Personality, Individual Differences, and Behavior Genetics

Scott is interested in the biological and affective mechanisms underlying individual differences in social cognition and behavior. His previous work has focused on the perception and bodily experience of emotion, as well as physiological stress in autism, schizotypy, and alexithymia. He uses methods such as fMRI, behavioral genetics, and structural equation modeling to better understand interpersonal motivation and interaction in relation to the Big Five and psychopathology.
