Joshua Herrington has a broad interest in developmental neurobiology and behavior. His research program explores the behavioral effects and biological mechanisms of early life experiences on behavior and physiology across the lifespan. He has conducted research in perceptual development, learning, and epidemiology in both human and non-human animal models including birds, non-human primates, and rodents. Currently, he and his collaborators are exploring the link between prenatal and early postnatal exposure to oxidative stress and a broad range of developmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder. He has experience teaching general, physiological, cognitive, emotional, health, and developmental psychology, as well as research methods. He earned a B.S. at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, spent time as a research associate at DePaul University in Chicago, was awarded an M.S. and PhD from Florida International University, and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the California National Primate Research Center at the University of California Davis.
