Biography

Dr. Stout received his bachelor’s degree in psychology and his master’s degree in clinical psychology from North Dakota State University where his research focused on cognition-emotion interactions. He received his PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He completed his APA accredited internship at the VA San Diego Healthcare System/UCSD Psychology Internship Training Program where he focused on the treatment of Veterans with PTSD and provided psychotherapy at the UCSD outpatient mental health clinic. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow in CESAMH, working with Dr. Victoria Risbrough and Dr. Alan Simmons examining the relationship between threat-learning, defensive responding, and cognitive control associated with trauma-related disorders using multimodal neuroimaging and psychophysiology.

Research/Clinical Interests

Dr. Stout’s role in CESAMH is to investigate the neurobiological mechanisms underlying the vulnerability to, maintenance, and treatment of trauma-related disorders. He is interested in the neural and psychophysiological substrates associated with threat-learning (e.g., contextual fear learning & extinction learning), defensive responding (e.g., persistent avoidance), cognition-emotion interactions (e.g., affective modulation of working memory). Another interest is integrating multimodal neuroimaging measures to better characterize trauma-related disorders, including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). His clinical focus is on providing evidence-based treatments for Veterans with PTSD, anxiety disorders, and major depression.
