Dr. Smith enjoys the challenge of teaching and conducting research in the areas of graduate and undergraduate physiological psychology, psychopharmacology, and neuroendocrinology.
Over the years, her research has focused on the neuroendocrine correlates of stress-induced alterations in behavior associated with gender differences in depression, impaired reproductive function, coronary artery disease, and eating disorders in humans and animals.
Dr. Smith also enjoys her advising duties and remains the principle advisor for pre-med students in the College of Social and Behavioral Science. She is most proud of the many accomplishments of her students. For her, it is their fervor for the acquisition of knowledge, growth, and professional development that motivates her teaching and research efforts.
