Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

Leveraging multi-shell diffusion for studies of brain development in youth and young adulthood

We find key advantages of multi-shell diffusion metrics, including increased neurodevelopmental coupling and decreased spurious relationships with imaging data quality.

Prematurity and Structural Brain Development

Prematurity is associated with the deficit in executive function and abnormalities in structural covariance networks.

Cortical thickness and adolescent impulsivity

In collaboration with Joe Kable, we demonstrate that impulsive choice during adolescence is associated with reduced cortical thickness in regions critical for reward valuation.

Overall psychopathology and cerebral blood flow

Higher levels of overall psychopathology across disorders are associated with differences in cerebral blood flow in key brain regions such as the anterior cingulate cortex.

Development of Structural Brain Networks

Structural brain networks grow more segregated during adolescent development, and support executive functioning.

Biological Psychiatry

Amygala perfusion and anxiety

We demonstrate that normative developmental sex differences in perfusion of brain regions involved in emotion and social cognition -- such as the amygdala-- mediate established sex differences in mood and anxiety symptoms in youth.
