CENTER FOR DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOBIOLOGY
UIC has created a new
interdisciplinary research unit called the Center for Developmental
Psychobiology to explore mind-body interactions through
the life-span. Stephen Porges and C. Sue Carter, world-renowned
researchers in the field, joined UIC this month and will
serve as co-directors
Part of UIC's
Institute for Juvenile Research, the center will be an intellectual
magnet for scientists interested in social behavior, behavioral
pathology, developmental disorders and emotional regulation
from several disciplines, including endocrinology, neuro-anatomy,
neurobiology, psychiatry and psychology. For Porges and
Carter, who are married to one another, the establishment
of the center at UIC fulfills their career-long goal of
creating an interdisciplinary research center with talented
colleagues who share their dedication to studying neuro-biological
models of social behavior and translating this knowledge
into treatment strategies for clinical populations.
behavioral sciences have long tried to explain and treat
such urgent clinical problems as autism, post-traumatic
stress disorder, rage, conduct disorders and attention-deficit
disorders. "Unfortunately, we still do not understand the
causal mechanisms underlying these disorders," Porges said.
"We know little about the factors that make one individual
vulnerable and another resilient. Treatments based on behavioral,
psychological and pharmacological models have had limited
success but have fallen far short of the ideal."
model is needed that incorporates our understanding of human
neurobiology and how neuro-biological states mediate and
regulate behavior and the range of psychological experiences,
Porges said. The new center's research will focus on applying
neuro-biological principles and knowledge in developing
explanations and treatments for dysfunctional behavior.
Carter are real stars in the world of psychobiology," said
Dr. Joseph Flaherty, head of psychiatry. "They and their
research expand the collective research efforts here in
uncovering the mechanisms that govern human behavior and
well-being. Their work will bring significant contributions
to a bio-psycho-social model of understanding the development
of normal and pathological behavior."
and Carter come from the University of Maryland, where Porges
was chair of the department of human development and director
of the Institute for Child Study and Carter was a distinguished
university professor in the department of biology. Porges
has been active in several national and international professional
organizations. He has served as president of the Society
for Psycho-physiological Research and is currently the president
of the Federation of Behavioral, Psychological and Cognitive
Studies, a consortium of 20 prominent research-oriented
societies. He is a fellow of several divisions of the American
Psychological Association and a charter fellow of the American

such as the National Institute of Mental Health, the National
Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the Maternal
and Child Health Bureau of the Federal Human Resources Service
Administration, the Unicorn Children's Foundation and Cure

of Mental Health to study the neurobiology of social development
in children. He has been awarded a patent for a methodology
that enables the dynamic assessment of the neural regulation
of the heart. The methodology is being used in more than
100 laboratories worldwide. Porges is currently conducting
research on a new biologically based behavioral intervention
designed to enhance the social behavior of autistic children.
He has written or contributed to more than 200 academic
journal articles and publications.
has focused on the biology of attachment behavior, particularly
in relation to hormones like oxytocin. In addition to her
ongoing research supported by the National Institutes of
Health, Carter is writing a book on the biology of monogamy.
Carter is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement
of Science and the International Society for Behavioral
Neuroscience. She is a member of the Animal Behavior Society,
the International Academy of Sex Research, the International
Society of Psycho-neuro-endocrinology, the International
Society for Neuro-endocrinology and the Society for Neurosciences.
She has received
grants from the National Science Foundation and the Rockefeller
Foundation, and currently directs a large program project

and Human Development that examines the developmental consequences
of oxytocin. Carter has written or contributed to more than

University of Illinois at Chicago
By Marco Caicedo, Staff Writer
Two top researchers of the psycho-social sciences soon will
begin their work at the newly created Developmental Psychobiology
Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
The husband-and-wife team of Dr. Stephen Porges and Dr.
C. Sue Carter, co-directors of the center, will research
mind and body interactions starting in the fall. The center
will be part of the Institute for Juvenile Research, a branch
of the psychiatry department at UIC located on the west
"Porges and Carter are real stars in the world of psychobiology,"
said Joseph Flaherty, head of the department of psychiatry.
"They and their research expand the collective research
efforts here in uncovering the mechanisms that govern human
behavior and well-being. Their work will bring significant
contributions to a bio-psychosocial model of understanding
the development of normal and pathological behavior,"
The center is an interdisciplinary research unit that integrates
the psychosocial and biological sciences. Researchers will
investigate basic biological processes, seek to understand
behavioral disorders and create a treatment mechanism that
can be applied in real clinical subjects.
"We are trying to merge with different departments
and work on problems such as behaviors and its psychological,
social and even physiological factors," Flaherty said.
Research on autism, schizophrenia and attention deficit
disorders are among future plans at the center.
Porges, also president of the Federation of Behavioral,
Psychological and Cognitive Studies, said the center will
have its own location in the Juvenile Research Center that
will include laboratories and offices.
Various scientists from research institutions such as Northwestern
University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
and UIC will work at the center.
Porges said UIC is a strategic location for the center because
of its proximity to the Illinois medical district, which
includes the UIC Medical Center, the West Side Veteran's
Administration Hospital and Rush Presbyterian-St. Luke's
Treatment mechanisms researched at the center might eventually
be practiced at the UIC hospital, he said.
Biology, psychology and human development are among UIC
departments that will work in conjunction with the research
program, Porges said. Graduate students with excellent academic
standing will be hired to work at the laboratories and internships
for undergraduates are not out of the question.
Porges has been awarded various research grants from organizations
such as the National Institute of Child Health and the Maternal
and Child Health Bureau of the Federal Human Resources.
He most recently was awarded a grant from the National Institute
of Mental Health to study neurobiology of social development.
The center will be fully funded by grants obtained by Porges
and Carter from the National Institute of Health.
Carter has focused her professional research on the biology
of attachment behavior. She is writing a book on monogamy
that seeks to explain how some hormones cause breaking bonds
between mothers and their children during adolescence.

Can't wait to do it again. Good riding.
" Originally from Boston, I am primarily a self-taught
artist but also studied at The Museum School of Fine Arts
in Boston. I began showing my work in Provincetown in 1997.
My experience over the past thirty years has varied from
more traditional mediums including wood sculpture, oil painting,
and drawing, to highly detailed antique and mechanical restorations.
During this same period I have collected objects including
salvaged hardwoods, metals, glass, and antique hardware.
About twelve years ago I began to incorporate the skills
and techniques that I have learned with my collection of
objects. Through physical manipulation of these materials,
along with the incorporation of key elements such as old
photos and nostalgic icons, I try to create works conveying
an intimate narrative.
There have been a number of artists and art movements that
have influenced my philosophy and artwork over the years.
Among them are artists of the Dada and Surrealist movements.
Their unconventional mediums of expression have inspired
my attempts to use items discarded by society as raw materials
in expressing an often-subjective message."
