We Are Recruiting Families for Research Experiments!
The CAD lab seeks to identify and understand the developmental mechanisms that lead to pathological anxiety and depression during adolescence, with a focus on the circuitry supporting the expression and regulation of emotion. We also examine potential biological factors that lead to the emergence of sex differences in such pathology during adolescence. We are particularly interested in the contribution of pubertal factors (e.g., testosterone) and how related individual differences may place children at greater risk for pathology. Finally, we develop novel tools for probing the complexity of brain networks. See the Research page for more detail.
We are hiring both a postdoctoral researcher and postbac RA! Please see the lab opportunities page for details.
