She is author or co-author of more than 100 scientific papers about mood disorders, creativity, and psychopharmacology. As a founder of UCLA's Affective Disorder Clinic and a co-author of a standard medical text on bipolar disorder,  Jamison is one of the foremost authorities on the subject.

It is this dual perspective as both a psychiatric expert in bipolar disorder and a sufferer of the disease that makes Jamison's scientific autobiography, An Unquiet Mind, so profoundly affecting.

She is a John P. and Catherine T. MacArthur Fellow.
