Graduate student Seth Disner has just had a paper published in Nature Reviews Neuroscience, a leading journal in the field of neuroscience. The article, co-authored by Dr. Chris Beevers (UT Psychology) and Emily Haigh & Aaron T. Beck (University of Pennsylvania), identifies the functional and structural neurobiological architecture of Beck's cognitive model of depression. It concludes that, in general, the negative cognitive biases in depression are facilitated by increased influence from subcortical emotion processing regions combined with attenuated top-down cognitive control.
