Antonia V. Seligowski
Antonia V. Seligowski, PhD, is a licensed clinical psychologist and Assistant Neuroscientist in the laboratory of Kerry J. Ressler, MD, PhD at McLean Hospital and an Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. She completed her pre-doctoral clinical psychology internship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School and her post-doctoral fellowship in Dr. Ressler’s Laboratory.
Using translational methods such as fear-potentiated startle and electroencephalogram, Dr. Seligowski’s research is focused on examining the neurophysiological underpinnings of PTSD. Her research also aims to identify how these mechanisms are influenced by gonadal hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone. With funding from the American Heart Association, Dr. Seligowski is studying the impact of estrogen on cardiovascular physiology in women with PTSD.
