Professor Sue Carter

SueCarter

Sue Carter is Professor of Psychiatry and Co-Director of The Brain Body Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dr. Carter studies the neurobiology of socio-emotional behaviours, including social bonds and parental behaviour. Research by Dr Carter and her colleagues established the prairie vole as a model for examining the neurobiology of monogamy. Her work also led to the discovery that oxytocin and vasopressin can programme the developing nervous system with life-long consequences for brain and behaviour. Professor Carter is currently involved in collaborative research examining the role of oxytocin and vasopressin in mental illnesses including schizophrenia and autism. She has authored over 250 articles and edited 5 volumes including 'Attachment and Bonding: A New Synthesis' (MIT Press, 2006). Dr. Carter has served as President of the International Behavioral Neuroscience Society, and was recipient of a Research Career Scientist Award from NIH.
