Research Programs and Labs (Alpha Order)
123-MOMSWorking to understand how programs for mothers and infants delivered online through telehealth can help to support family health and wellbeing. Anderson LabNeurochemical analyses for the investigation of atypical development and the bioeffects of psychopharmacological agents. Anxiety & Mood Disorder ProgramAssessment and treatment of anxiety and mood disorders in young people focusing on psychological, behavioral, and brain mechanisms. Asian-American Early Educators ProjectLaunched in May 2022 to better understand the degree and nature of anti-Asian racial aggression and trauma experienced by Asian-American early educators during the COVID-19 pandemic, this project aims to lift the voices of Asian-American early educators in the U.S. and develop a pilot support program to mitigate the adverse impact of racial trauma on Asian-American early educators. Bloch LabEstablishing the efficacy and safety of various pharmacological treatments using evidence-based methodologies including meta-analysis and clinical trials. Chawarska LabStudying the early social and emotional development of children with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders Cho LabUsing fMRI to understand the development of cognitive, emotional, and motivational brain circuits in adolescents with depression and adolescents with schizophrenia. Crowley LabWorking to understand the brain-based predictors of anxiety and depression in typical youth, clinical populations, and adolescent substance use risk through multimodal imaging and physiological assessment. Developmental Electrophysiology Laboratory (DEL)A developmental laboratory, designed for, and experienced with typical and atypical populations from infancy through later adulthood, equipped to study brain electrical responses and peripheral psychophysiological indices of cognition, emotion and arousal. Fernandez LabStudying genetic risk and neurobiological causes and consequences in early onset psychiatric conditions. Gupta LabInvestigating the neurogenetic basis of autism spectrum disorder with a focus on multimodal analyses of understudied populations. Hampson LabTreating and studying neuropsychiatric conditions using novel functional neuroimaging techniques including real-time fMRI neurofeedback and resting state functional connectivity. Hoffman LabInvestigating the function of genes associated with neurodevelopmental and neuropsychiatric disorders using a zebrafish system. Jou GroupThe Jou Lab collaborates with other research teams in order to characterize the neurobiology of autism by studying brain structure and underlying connections using neuroimaging technology. Lebowitz LabStudying the underlying neurobiological mechanisms of childhood anxiety disorders, to develop and test new therapies. McPartland LabStudying behavior and brain systems to better understand the social experiences of people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and to improve their quality of life. Outpatient ClinicWorking to improve and increase the effectiveness of outpatient mental health services for children and adolescents in community settings. Stover LabExamining etiology of family violence and development of best practice interventions to stop the cycle of violence. Sukhodolsky LabConducting clinical and translational research on neural mechanisms and effectiveness of novel cognitive, behavioral, and neuroscience-based interventions for autism spectrum disorder, pediatric irritability, and Tourette Syndrome. Vaccarino LabUsing human stem cells to recreate brain development in a dish for any given person, with the aim of discovering person-to-person differences in brain biology and understand the origin of neuropsychiatric disorders. Ventola LabProviding Pivotal Response Treatment (PRT) to children with ASD and investigating biological markers of treatment response. Yale CARESAn interdisciplinary research team studying the health, mental health, and wellbeing of young children and adults in early care and education settings. Yale-China Program on Child DevelopmentA cross-cultural program which promotes research collaboration and evidence-based training related to early childhood education and child development in both China and in the United States (particularly among Asian Americans).
