John T. Cacioppo

Department of Psychology
The University of Chicago

Research Interests:

Cacioppo and an interdisciplinary team of colleagues have been investigating the potential transduction pathways through which social isolation and loneliness contribute to broad-based morbidity and mortality in older adults. A population-based longitudinal study in urban Chicago is ongoing to test hypotheses regarding the specific causal mechanisms that are underlying these findings, and event-related fMRI and ERPs are being used to examine underlying neurobiological mechanisms. Students in Cacioppo’s lab learn personality and social psychological assessments; neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, pulmonary, electrocortical, and fMRI methods; and statistical techniques ranging from signal detection analysis, psychometrics, and change score analyses to longitudinal analyses, factor analysis, LISREL, and multi-level modeling.
