About Stephanie Brown, PhD

Dr. Brown received her PhD in social psychology from Arizona State University. She is currently an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the Stony Brook Medical School. Dr. Brown uses a variety of biomarkers to test whether and how helping behavior in humans emerges from neural circuits that evolved to motivate parenting behavior. Her studies increase understanding of how neural circuits that support parenting behavior promote mental health and protect individuals against disease.
