Susan M. Schneider
Area of Interest/Research
I am a developmental psychobiologist, learning researcher, and behavior analyst. I recently published a book for the public, The Science of Consequences: How They Affect Genes, Change the Brain, and Impact Our World. Taking an inclusive "systems" approach, it covers the principles of learning from consequences, their larger nature-and-nurture context, and their wide range of applications (see the book's website, www.scienceofconsequences.com, for the table of contents, reviews, etc.). It's a selection of the Scientific American Book Club, and I am doing a national book tour in 2013 and 2014.
Listed here are a few of my recent and pending publications. Additional publications and presentations are included on my curriculum vita (link below).
