    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Summary
    Dr. Edmiston's research focuses on bottom-up sensory perception in people with or at risk for mood and anxiety disorders. He uses neuroimagingand neuromodulation techniques to assess the function of the ventral visual stream during emotion and novelty perception in children, adolescents, and young adults. Dr. Edmiston has secondary interests in transgender health education and healthcare access.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
