Research Interests and Publications

Elliot Berkman, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Oregon and Associate Managing Director of the Center for Translational Neuroscience. He studies the motivational and cognitive factors that contribute to success and failure at health goals such as cigarette smoking cessation and dieting. His research leverages the distinct strengths of several research methods, including functional magnetic resonance imaging, longitudinal survey methods, and laboratory experiments. This work adopts a translational neuroscience approach by using knowledge of brain function, structure, and connectivity to design and improve interventions on health behavior and wellbeing. Projects in the lab are currently funded by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. He directs the Social and Affective Neuroscience Laboratory in the Department of Psychology. Follow is blog at Psychology Today, The Motivated Brain, and his twitter feed @Psychologician.

The Social and Affective Neuroscience Lab particularly welcomes scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in the academcy.

Dr. Berkman will be accepting new doctoral students for Fall 2021.
