The Neurobiology of Socioeconomic Health Disparities
Peter Gianaros, University of Pittsburgh

In this December 2013 seminar, Visiting Scholar Peter Gianaros discussed findings from a recent program of health neuroscience research aimed at understanding how the brain might link socioeconomic disadvantage to health and profiles of disease risk.

Gianaros is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. Research by Gianaros and his colleagues uses human functional and structural neuroimaging methods to understand how the brain links stressful experiences with risk for developing cardiovascular disease in particular.
