Families, Affective Neuroscience, and Mood Disorders (FAM) Lab

The Families, Affective Neuroscience, and Mood Disorders Lab seeks to identify behavioral-brain risk markers and preventive interventions for child and adolescent depression. By combining multiple units of analysis, (i.e., behavioral, EEG, pupil dilation, fMRI), we explore cognitive-affective processing styles involved in the development of depression in youth and also in the transmission of depression from parents to their offspring. The ultimate goal of this research is to develop reliable, objective tools that can aid in the prevention and diagnosis of youth depression.
