The intended audience of the symposium is researchers and trainees from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, and related disciplines who are interested in investigating emotions, mood, affective development, and affective disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders and other related comorbid disorders) from a neuroscience perspective.
While presentations may focus on both typically developing and clinical samples, all work will have relevance to understanding developmental psychopathology. DANS is focused on translational research in developmental affective neuroscience. Presentations will range from basic (animal/human) to clinical, and may include a variety of neuroscience approaches (i.e., fMRI, EEG, molecular) as well as clinical or behavioral studies that are relevant to neuroscience models of affective development.
This event is hosted by the Developmental Affective Science Collective, University of Pittsburgh Department of Psychiatry and the University of Pittsburgh Brain Institute. For more information, visit our website: DASCPitt.org.
