Clinical & Translational Research

Developing and testing new clinical interventions based on neuroscientific discoveries.

Clinical & Translational Research

  • Clinical Innovations

    The Clinical Innovations pod focuses on clinical trials of child mental health interventions, evaluating the accumulating evidence around specific interventions, and disseminating current assessments of the state of the evidence for child mental health treatments for different disorders. Additionally, investigators oversee clinical trials of new and promising treatments for childhood psychiatric disorders.
  • Computation Models and Data Analysis

    The computational models and data analysis pod applies principals of statistical or deep learning to complex datasets from neuroimaging, genetics, and electrophysiology.
  • Neuroimaging

    Investigators are bringing innovative and advanced image analysis techniques to study fetal brain development, changes in neural function with parenting, resting state brain activity in normal and atypical individuals, and the use of real time neurofeedback as an intervention for specific developmental disorders.
  • Autism and Neurodevelopment

    Investigators focus on how the social brain develops and how infants and children learn about the social world, especially in developmental disorders such as autism.
  • Social and Affective Neurodevelopment of Autism Program

    The Yale Social and Affective Neurodevelopment of Autism Program (Yale SANA Program) is focused on early social and affective development of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disabilities.
