Our program of research examines the development of the human amygdala and its connections with cortical regions. I have examined this question both behaviorally and at the neurobiological level both in typical developmental samples and following early life stress (e.g., adverse caregiving). With support from the NIMH BRAINS R01, I have examined the developmental construction of limbic-cortical connections and associated emotional behaviors during childhood and adolescence, conducting large, longitudinal and cross-sectional studies on emotion perception in children with and without a history of early life stress.
