Developmental Translational Neuroscience

The research in the laboratory focuses on the development, disruption and neurobiological basis of attention and affect regulation. We use brain imaging to examine developmental transitions across the life span, especially during the period of adolescence. Our human imaging work is grounded in translational studies from genetically altered mice to humans to patients, developing models for several mental heath problems that affect millions of young people today. These studies have begun to inform when and how to target treatments to the individual based on age and genetic profile (i.e., precision medicine).
