Sauder, Colin L. PhD

School of Medicine

Dr. Sauder is a child and adolescent psychologist who received his undergraduate education at Brandeis University, and obtained master?s degrees in psychology from the University of Washington and Stony Brook University. In 2015, Dr. Sauder received his doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Stony Brook University, and completed his clinical training in behavioral medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
Dr. Sauder?s work has focused on identifying the neural markers associated with psychopathology in children and adolescents using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He is particularly interested in how the neural systems associated with reward processing and behavioral inhibition contribute to impulsivity and aggression. He has worked as a graduate student and clinical trainee on two NIMH-sponsored research studies that have examined neural markers associated with mood problems, impulsivity, and aggression. His doctoral thesis examined how reward sensitivity interacts with pubertal development to predict impulsive behavior. Over the past two years, Dr. Sauder has been focused on identifying biomarkers that predict treatment response in children with ADHD and aggression. Dr. Sauder is currently pursuing his own preliminary study that will examine how the neural systems underpinning reward processing, behavioral inhibition, and emotional reactivity interact to predict treatment success in children with ADHD and aggressive behavior problems.
