Kid Standing on Bench

Our Aim

is to study biological, cognitive, behavioral

and environmental factors that contribute

to the etiology and maintenance of anxiety disorders.

Measuring Tape

We use psychological, physiological, and neuroscientific measures to better understand how these factors differentiate between the development of normative fear and pathological anxiety.

We focus on information processing and specifically on fear learning.

Research on these learning processes provides unique opportunities for improving early detection and generating novel treatments for anxiety disorders.

Children Running

Another line of research in our lab focuses on

gender development.

There are very few factors that substantially affect the lives of people as much as sex and gender.

By using age-appropriate and culturally adapted measurements, we study typical and atypical gender development across the lifespan.
