Associate Professor of Psychology

Sarah Holstein earned her Ph.D. in Behavioral Neuroscience from Oregon Health & Science University. Her primary research interests surround the neuropharmacological basis of acute alcohol sensitivity and drinking behaviors using a rodent model. She is especially interested in developmental differences in sensitivity to alcohol and how the protracted patterns of neural development during adolescence may promote binge-like drinking during this adolescent period. She joined the psychology faculty in August 2015.
