PhD Candidate

Curriculum Vitae

Marilyn’s research interests are in emotion processing, decision-making, and prosociality in aging and she investigates interventions that may optimize socioemotional functioning in later life. Her current work examines the brain-behavioral effects of intranasal oxytocin among older adults within social and emotional domains. Her master’s research focused on the effects of age and single-dose intranasal oxytocin on functional connectivity during dynamic emotion identification. Her dissertation work will examine the effects of chronic intranasal oxytocin on resting-state functional connectivity among regions implicated in socioemotional processes in older adults.
