Rita Pasion

Master’s degree in Psychology (Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the University of Porto) and is a certified member of the Portuguese Psychological Association. Since 2014 she has been developing her work at the Laboratory of Neuropsychophysiology using neuroscience to study the etiological pathways of internalizing and externalizing psychopathology (e.g., anxiety, depression, antisocial behavior, psychopathy) . She is currently involved in 2 research projects inserted in the ¿Research Domain Criteria” initiative promoted by the National Institute of Mental Health (USA) that aim to search for basic mechanisms of psychopathology and identify biomarkers that may be useful to conceive empirically-informed classification diagnosis systems and interventions. Her research work has resulted in a considerable amount of scientific production with about 35 publications (11 of them as first author) in top-level international journals, such as Social Neuroscience, Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, Psychophysiology, Psychological Assessment, Behavioral and Brain Sciences, Cognitive Affective & Behavioral Neuroscience, Neurobiology of Aging, and Personality and Individual Differences. She has recently received 2 awards: one in 2018 for fostering open science practices (Open Science Framework, USA) and other in 2019 for her contribution as a junior researcher to psychology and behavioral science (ISPA, PT).
