Discovering and promoting emotional health in adolescence and across the lifespan. The mission of the RADD Lab is to gain insight into the brain and behavioral processes that reflect or underlie depression and other mood experiences, with the goal of leveraging our discoveries to foster emotional health.
Who We Are in the RADD Lab
The RADD Lab includes our director, Dr. Roselinde Kaiser, together with students, collaborators, and clinicians across the disciplines of neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, computer science, and education. We believe that scientific progress and effective translation are best achieved with interdisciplinary teamwork and connection to our community.
What We Do in the RADD Lab
We are engaged in research that asks the questions: how can brain functioning and behavior help us to understand the experience of depression in adolescence and over the course of human development? can we use brain or behavioral markers to better predict depression – or to predict resilience? and how can we enhance brain and behavioral functioning to promote emotional health and wellness throughout the lifespan?
Participate in RADD Research
Is emotional health and wellness important to you, too? Are you interested in participating in a research study? Our active research studies include opportunities for adolescents and adults with diverse mood and life experiences.
