Risk for Anxiety and Depression (RAD) Lab

Our lab focuses on examining possible neural biomarkers of risk for affective psychopathology (i.e. anxiety, depression). To accomplish this, we use electrophysiological techniques (i.e., EEG) as well as other neuroimaging (e.g., fMRI) methods and neurobiological correlates (e.g., hormones).

Presently, our lab is no longer accepting DIS students or volunteers for the Spring 2023 semester as we have a full team of research assistants. For consideration for Summer 2023 term, please reach out before April 1, 2023.


  • Must be able to commit at least 2 semesters in the lab and 9 hours weekly (3 credit hours)
  • Attend 1 weekly lab meeting (1 hour)
  • Must have weekend availability
