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 Assistant Professor of Psychology 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 conditioning and EEG, Dr. Seligowski’s research is focused on the neurophysiological underpinnings of PTSD. Her research aims to identify how altered neurophysiology in PTSD increases susceptibility to cardiovascular disease via the neurocardiac circuit, and how these mechanisms are influenced by sex hormones. With funding from the NIH and the American Heart Association, Dr. Seligowski is studying the impact of estradiol on neurophysiology (e.g., functional brain connectivity, startle) and cardiovascular physiology (e.g., blood pressure, renin levels) in women with PTSD.
