Bio/Research

Daniel Antonius, a forensic psychologist, studies terrorism, violence and aggression.Antonius co-edited “The Political Psychology of Terrorism Fears,” a book examining how emotional responses to terrorism — especially fear — can influence aspects of the political process, including the way people decide what governmental policies to support.He has spoken to the media on topics such as jury selection in the Boston bombing trial, the way terror attacks instill fear in a population, and violence among those with mental health problems.He can also discuss chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) and why he believes more research needs to be done before scientists can draw conclusions about how this neurodegenerative brain disease is linked to behavioral changes such as increased aggression.Antonius oversees UB’s forensic psychiatry program, which works at the intersection of the mental health and legal fields. His research focuses on the neurobiological, behavioral and societal factors that underlie human emotions, aggression and impulsivity.
