Antonia V. Seligowski, PhD is an assistant neuroscientist in the laboratory of Kerry J. Ressler, MD, PhD. Using translational methods such as fear-potentiated startle and electroencephalogram, Dr. Seligowski’s research is focused on examining the physiological and neurophysiological underpinnings of PTSD. Further, her research aims to identify how these mechanisms change over the course of treatment.

Dr. Seligowski completed her pre-doctoral clinical psychology internship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School. In 2017, she received the Andrew P. Merrill Memorial Research Fellowship to support her research investigating phenotypes and biomarkers that predict treatment response among women with PTSD. In 2018, Dr. Seligowski received the Adam J. Corneel Young Investigator Award to support her examination of how genetic variation in response to estrogen levels confers risk for physiological intermediate phenotypes of PTSD.
