Patricia Tueting, PhD

Research Assistant Professor

Dr. Tueting received a Ph.D. degree from Columbia University in New York City and was an NIMH postdoctoral fellow in an interdisciplinary research group at the New York State Psychiatric Institute where she conducted research on scalp recorded EEG and evoked potentials in psychiatric patients. She also had a tenure track position in the City University system. While briefly moving to Washington D.C., she joined the University of Maryland faculty and continued research in the area of psychopathology/cognitive evoked potentials at the Maryland State Psychiatric Institute. In addition, she served as a consultant for the extramural research program at the NIMH. After moving to Chicago, she took a research position at the Illinois State Psychiatric Institute and later became the Director of Research Administration for a number of years. When the research and education components of the Institute were transferred to the University Illinois at Chicago, she joined the Department of Psychiatry research group under the leadership of Erminio Costa and Alessandro Guidotti. This affiliation was briefly interrupted by a stint as Vice President of a Chicago based company that conducted human positron emission tomography (PET) under contract with pharmaceutical companies.


Dr. Tueting’s interests have tapped many aspects of the diverse interdisciplinary area of Neuroscience/Psychopathology ranging from brain imaging in humans (multi lead EEG, evoked potentials, PET scanning) to measurement of pyramidal cell dendritic spines in mice.
