I am broadly interested in studying learning, memory and emotion using behavioral neuroscience techniques.  I have more recently become interested in how the brain's memory systems and emotional regulation systems come to function and cooperate over the course of development.  I enjoy teaching at both the introductory and upper levels. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and practicing the martial arts.

Julie Longua Peterson is an Assistant Professor of psychology at the University of New England and the principal investigator of the Self and Close Relationships Lab.  Her program of research investigates the ways in which explicit (conscious, controlled) and implicit (unconscious, automatic) self and relationship processes influence how people navigate the ups and downs of daily life (e.g., acceptance, rejection).  Julie's courses include Introduction to Psychology, Social Psychology, Research Methods, Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, and a seminar in Self...

Expertise

Explicit and Implicit self-esteem; self-regulation; the role of the self in close relationships (e.g.

romantic relationships)
