Dr. Treadway is a clinical psychologist and neuroscientist focused on understanding the molecular and circuit-level mechanisms of psychiatric symptoms related to mood, anxiety, and decision-making. He received his PhD in clinical psychology from Vanderbilt University in 2012, and completed his clinical internship and post-doc at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School. As Director of the Translational Research in Affective Disorders Laboratory (TReADLab) in the Department of Psychology at Emory University, Dr. Treadway’s research employs a variety of methods, including multimodal neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, MRS, and PET), behavioral paradigms, computational modeling, and clinical/personality assessment. A particular interest has been the assessment of reward motivation in psychiatric populations, for which Dr. Treadway has developed several laboratory tasks, including the Effort-Expenditure for Rewards Task (EEfRT).
