bbrf awards icon Bio

Dr. Gregory P. Strauss received his B.S. in Psychology from the University of Georgia in 2002, and then completed his graduate studies at UNLV where he earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. Following completion of his clinical internship in adult neuropsychology at the University of Illinois-Chicago, he completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in neuroscience at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center within the University of Maryland School of Medicine. In 2010, he was promoted to tenure-track Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Now he is a tenure track Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Georgia.

He is a schizophrenia researcher examining the etiology, assessment, and treatment of negative symptoms. His primary focus is on understanding the cause of symptoms like anhedonia, avolition, and asociality from an affective neuroscience perspective. He uses a variety of methods in these studies, such as Event Related Potentials, Eye-Tracking, and peripheral psychophysiology. He is also actively exploring the efficacy of novel psychosocial and pharmacological (e.g., oxytocin) treatments of negative symptoms, and developing a next-generation negative symptom assessment.
