Brain Imaging in Adolescents and Adults With Emotion Dysregulation Disorders

The focus of this research program is to examine neural underpinnings of emotion dysregulation in adolescents and adults with psychiatric disorders including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and borderline personality disorder. The neural substrates of emotion undergo substantial maturational change across adolescents, and the researchers hypothesize that the pathophysiology of emotion dysregulation disorders that frequently emerge during these developmental time frames may involve aberrant neurodevelopmental processes that can be detected with advanced brain imaging techniques. This work encompasses several studies focusing on specific populations within this overarching category of emotion dysregulation in adolescence and early adulthood.
