research overview

  • Dr. Ito's research addresses social psychological issues using a multi-level approach that integrates social psychological and neuroscience perspectives. Her research focuses in particular on issues related to stereotyping and prejudice, particularly focusing on basic social cognitive and neural mechanisms supporting the activation of group-based associations and the role of cognitive control in implicit stereotyping. She also examines the impact of stereotypes from the perspective of members of the stereotyped group. This work particularly examines the impact of gender stereotypes about math and science ability on the achievement of women in math and science. She also studies the genetic, cognitive, social, and neural processes that predict adolescent marijuana use.
