In the Research on Affective Disorders and Development (RADD) laboratory we are working to understand neurocognitive dysfunction in depression, including abnormalities in the structure, molecular signaling, and coordinated activity of brain networks involved in cognitive regulation and learning. We explore these topics from a developmental perspective, with special interest in using neurocognitive risk markers to predict the onset and course of depression or bipolar disorders in teens or young adults. Clinically, we are testing how neurocognitive functioning may be enhanced to foster mood health, with the goal of translating basic science into improved treatment and emotional wellness.
