Our research is focused on applying scientific tools to understand the brain and behavioral predictors and mechanisms of clinical interventions and mental health training programs. Our research investigates social, cognitive, affective, neural and behavioral components of psychopathology and well-being in adults and families. We investigate how these components are modified by a variety of psychosocial interventions, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, aerobic exercise, mindfulness meditation, vipassana meditation, compassion meditation.  To understand the complexity of human functioning, we use multidimensional assessments, including functional neuroimaging (fMRI, EEG), genetics, stress hormones, self-report, behavioral tasks, information processing tasks, clinical and individual difference measures.
