To investigate neural, behavioral, and subjective aspects of reward function in order to elucidate the development and pathophysiology of adolescent depression and substance use.  To train undergraduates, medical students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty in clinical affective neuroscience.  By combining an affective neuroscience approach and a developmental psychopathology framework, we hope to ultimately improve treatments for these disorders.
