Dr. Moore is a behavior geneticist interested in the biological underpinnings of mental illness. She is especially interested in genetic and physiological markers associated with the development of psychopathic and callous-unemotional (CU) traits. Some of her current projects include: 1) twin-based structural equation models investigating the heritability of CU traits, 2) testing the relationships between fear, startle response, and psychopathic/CU traits, 3) examining the relationships between CU traits and cingulate cortex volume, and 4) investigating sex-differences in the biological correlates of psychopathic/CU traits.
