Dr. Arentoft’s current research program focuses on neuropsychological functioning and health disparities among underrepresented and disenfranchised populations, particularly in individuals with HIV/AIDS. Her work employs a biopsychosociocultural framework, emphasizing the multifactorial nature of brain-behavior relationships and other health-related outcomes.
