Adolescent Depression and Psychopathology:

The neural basis of aspects of self-knowledge, self-understanding and social cognitions are strongly linked to the course and morbidity associated to pediatric depressive disorders and risks for the illness during the adolescent transition. Our laboratory has collected functional magnetic resonance (fmri) data while teens think about- and see themselves while in the scanner. We are currently finishing data processing on three neuroimaging of tasks that tap self-knowledge and social interaction as well as diffusion tension imaging.

Graduate students interested in clinical neuroscience are welcomed to contact us at queve001@umn.edufor collaboration in writing of manuscripts, data analyses and learning about how to use fmri to study basic processes of emotion and social cognition.
