Research Interests

Dr. Terry’s research experiences involved using psychophysiological assessment techniques (e.g., electrocardiography, skin conductance, electromyography) to investigate the influence of emotion on pain and nociceptive processing in various clinical and non-clinical populations, as well as, investigating how psychosocial variables (e.g., pain catastrophizing, negative affect, anxiety sensitivity) alter pain processing.  Dr. Terry’s current research interests involve examining individual differences in pain, by identifying biopsychosocial mechanisms contributing to age-related changes in pain processing.
