John J.B. Allen
Psychology, University of Arizona
Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Neuroscience
Department of Psychology
Dr. Allen received his graduate training at the University of Minnesota, and following an internship at the VA medical center in Minneapolis, he assumed his current position in Arizona in 1992, where he is now Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Neuroscience at the University of Arizona. His research involves using electroencephalographic and autonomic psychophysiological measures as endophenotypes in the quest to identify risk factors for depression. He is interested broadly in the etiology and treatment of mood disorders, and in asymmetrical frontal brain activity as a marker of risk for depression and alteration of vagal tone as a predictor of treatment response in depression. Additionally, he has published on the assessment of memory and amnesia using event-related potentials, assessing deception and malingering, and assessing the veridicality and the nature of amnesia in dissociative disorders.
