The laboratory of Rina Das Eiden (Development, Risk, and Resilience Lab) at The Pennsylvania State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral position. The key aim of our research is to understand risk and resilience processes among children of substance using parents and early intervention with this population. Research conducted in our lab use an interdisciplinary […]
A preliminary study of association between adolescent estradiol level and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex activity during emotion regulation Author: Chung Y, et al. (2019), Psychoneuroendocrinology. ABSTRACT: Non-human primate models have been useful in clarifying estradiol’s role in cognitive processing. These animal studies indicate estradiol impacts cognitive processes supported by regions within dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC). Although […]

Childhood abuse predicts affective symptoms via HPA reactivity during mother-infant stress Author: Kern S & Laurent HK. (2019), Psychoneuroendocrinology. ABSTRACT: Despite extensive literature positing the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis as a mechanism in the association between early childhood maltreatment and later adult psychopathology, empirical support for this full pathway is lacking. We tested indirect effects of […]
Prospective Relations Between Prenatal Maternal Cortisol and Child Health Outcomes. Author: Roettger ME, et al. (2019), Psychosom Med. OBJECTIVE: To investigate prospective, longitudinal associations between maternal prenatal cortisol response to an interpersonal stressor and child health over the subsequent three years. METHODS: 123 women expecting their first child provided salivary cortisol samples between 12-32 weeks […]

Prefrontal Cortex and Amygdala Activity Lead to Differing Individual Psychosocial Stress Emotional Responses
Amygdala and prefrontal cortex activity varies with individual differences in the emotional response to psychosocial stress. Author: Orem TR, et al. (2019), Behav Neurosci. ABSTRACT Stress elicits a variety of psychophysiological responses that show large interindividual variability. Determining the neural mechanisms that mediate individual differences in the emotional response to stress would provide new insight […]
Gender-based violence and trauma in marginalized populations of women: Role of biological embedding and toxic stress. Author: Sabri B, et al. (2018), Health Care Women Int. ABSTRACT Gender-based violence (GBV) and trauma can dysregulate and recalibrate environmentally sensitive physiological (i.e. central nervous, endocrine, and immune) systems placing survivors at risk for multiple health problems. The […]
Improving Infants’ Stress-Induced Cortisol Regulation through Attachment-Based Intervention: A Randomized Controlled Trial Author: Berlin LJ, et al. (2019), Psychoneuroendocrinology. ABSTRACT Attachment-based parenting interventions have shown positive effects on early cortisol regulation, a key biomarker. Evaluations to date have focused on diurnal cortisol production in high-risk infants. It is important to understand whether attachment-based intervention may […]
The newly opened University of New South Wales (UNSW) Salivary Bioscience Research Centre (SBRC) housed within the School of Psychology is hiring a Laboratory Technician/Manager (Senior Technical Officer). The mission of the SBRC is to serve as a University service centre by enabling access to high quality salivary assay services and technical support for a […]
Salivary DHEA-Cortisol Ratio Associations with Parental Maltreatment and Juvenile Incarcerated Male Psychopathy
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and its ratio to cortisol moderate associations between maltreatment and psychopathology in male juvenile offenders Author: Kimonis ER, et al. (2019), Psychoneuroendocrinology. ABSTRACT This study examined whether DHEA and its ratio to cortisol moderated risk for psychopathology among incarcerated youth exposed to childhood maltreatment. Resistance to stress-related psychopathology under adversity was also examined in […]
Cortisol as a Target Mediator for Therapeutic Horseback Riding Effects in Youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Replication Pilot Trial of Therapeutic Horseback Riding and Cortisol Collection With Children on the Autism Spectrum Author: Zhaoxing P, et al. (2019), Frontiers. ABSTRACT We aimed to determine whether results of our prior randomized control trial [RCT; NCT02301195, (1)] of Therapeutic Horseback Riding (THR) for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) could be replicated […]
