Dr. Burkhouse is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and a Clinical Psychologist affiliated with UIC’s Pediatric Mood Disorders Clinic. She received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Binghamton University (SUNY) and completed her Clinical Internship at UIC. Her program of research broadly focuses on identifying behavioral-brain risk phenotypes and preventive interventions for youth depressive disorders. Much of Dr. Burkhouse's work has focused on utilizing multiple levels of analysis (i.e., behavioral, EEG, pupil dilation, fMRI) to identify cognitive-affective processing styles involved in the intergenerational transmission of depression. As part of a NIMH K23 award, she is exploring whether deficits in social-emotional and motivational processing at the neural level are direct familial mechanisms implicated in the transmission of depression from mothers to their daughters.
