The Neuroscience of Emotion Regulation in Child Mental Health

The Ibrahim Lab investigates the neural bases of emotion regulation in child mental health. Our research strives to advance understanding of brain systems that play a role in regulating emotions and vulnerabilities in these neural networks that can contribute to child mental health. Our research is clinically informed regarding child mental health and aims to advance development of neuroscience-based biomarkers that can inform diagnosis and treatment for children.

To accomplish this, the Ibrahim Lab conducts clinical research using multimodal neuroimaging approaches (functional and structural MRI) to understand how patterns of connectivity in the brain contribute to strengths and vulnerabilities in child mental health. We also leverage large-scale datasets, predictive modeling and computational neuroscience methods to advance understanding of brain systems involved in emotion regulation.
