Michael T. Treadway, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the Emory College of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Treadway is a clinical psychologist and neuroscientist focused on understanding the molecular and circuit-level mechanisms of psychiatric symptoms related to mood, anxiety, and decision-making.
Dr. Treadway is a member of the Cancer Prevention and Control research program at Winship Cancer Institute.
Dr. Treadway received his PhD in clinical psychology from Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee, and completed his clinical internship and post-doctoral training at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Belmont, Massachussetts.
Dr. Treadway's research is focused on understanding the molecular and circuit-level mechanisms of psychiatric symptoms related to mood, anxiety, and decision-making. His research employs a variety of methods, including multimodal neuroimaging techniques (fMRI, MRS, and PET), behavioral paradigms, computational modeling, and clinical/personality assessment. A particular interest has been the assessment of reward motivation in psychiatric populations, for which Dr. Treadway has developed several laboratory tasks, including the Effort-Expenditure for Rewards Task (EEfRT).
