This page has most of my publications, which can be downloaded as PDFs.
(If you don't know what is meant by "first author" or "peer-reviewed," see below.)
The papers with colleagues as first authors were chosen (from a larger number) because I helped to design the studies and/or interpret the findings, not just write the paper, and because I believe the topics and findings are important.
Brain Imaging Studies of PTSD

What "peer-reviewed" means: I submitted the manuscripts to editors of specific journals, who then sent them to anonymous reviewers, who, along with the editors, provided feedback and suggestions (or demands) for specific changes that were incorporated into the final published version (or otherwise addressed, e.g., rebutted or issue clarified in resubmission letters to editors). This peer review process ensures "quality control" in the scientific enterprise, though it can also hinder or prevent the publication of ideas and findings that challenge the conventional wisdom.
For papers where I'm first in the author list, I did most of the work of writing the paper. In most cases where I'm "first author," I designed the study, supervised its implementation (e.g., participant recruitment, data collection, data analysis, etc.), and interpreted the findings. However, science is always a team effort, and in every case my co-authors played important roles too.
