Dean is interested in the complex relationship between mental illness, cumulative stress, and the brain. His research examines how the experience of stressful life events can influence the structure and function of the brain across different forms of mental illness. His dissertation adopts a trans-diagnostic approach to the study of this relationship in a mixed patient/control sample, focusing on how memory ability and related brain structures and function are disrupted following chronic stress.
