Research Description: Dr. Singh’s clinical research program over the past 10 years has made important contributions to our understanding of the neurobiological basis of impairments in reward processing that can lead to major mood disorders and medical morbidities such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. She has innovated methods for studying mechanisms and risk factors using monetary and food reward paradigms, and discovered important environmental and familial risk factors for developing mood disorders and understanding factors that contribute to treatment response and treatment-related adverse events. Her group has productive collaborations with multiple members of the SDRC, detailed below and in the proposal.
