The Child and Adolescent Development of Emotion, Personality and Psychopathology (CADEPP) Lab conducts research on how development interacts with specific risk factors to increase the likelihood of developing psychopathology.  In particular, our work focuses on linking changes in reward-related brain functioning to the onset of depression in children and adolescents. A variety of methodology is used, including neuroimaging (fMRI), behavioral tasks and self-report.
