This page has most of my publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals. It also has an editorial that I was invited to write for a journal, a book I co-edited, and chapters I wrote for that book. Most can be downloaded as PDFs.

For articles I’ve written for non-academic publications – including The Washington Post, Time, Scientific American and a blog for Psychology Today – see Sexual Assault & the Brain.

For peer-reviewed papers where I’m first in the author list, I took the lead and wrote all or most of the paper. In most cases where I’m first author, I designed the study, supervised its implementation (e.g., data collection, data analysis, etc.), and interpreted the findings. Science is always a team effort, and in every case my co-authors played important roles too.

Papers with colleagues as first authors were chosen (from a larger number) because I helped to design the studies and/or interpret the findings, not just write the paper, and because I believe the topics and findings are important.

For each publication, you can click on its title for a description and click on the link to download the PDF, go to the online version, or view it on Amazon.
