We study biobehavioral mechanisms and their relation to neurodevelopmental and emotional disorders in young patients. We use, for example, cognitive/behavioral experiments and electrophysiology to expand the understanding of ADHD, autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders and depression. Our aim is to improve the assessment, treatment and long-term outcome for young individuals with neurodevelopmental and emotional disorders.
