Laura Quiñones Camacho is an Assistant Professor in the Human Development, Culture, and Learning Sciences program in Educational Psychology. Her research explores how contextual and family factors influence neurobiological mechanisms for self-regulation and psychopathology throughout the childhood years. She uses techniques ranging from psychophysiology (e.g., RSA, PEP) to neuroimaging (e.g., EEG, fNIRS), as well as experimental and longitudinal approaches. Her most recent work has focused on identifying dyadic neurobiological mechanisms for the intergenerational transmission of mental health problems.
