Learn about the SEAL
We are the Studies of Early Anxiety Lab (SEAL). We use brain imaging, clinical interviews, eye tracking, surveys, and various computer-based tasks to help better understand the biological basis of anxiety disorders. Our research focuses on brain function and development in children both with and without anxiety disorders as well as infants at risk for anxiety disorders. Our goal is to work toward better understanding, earlier detection and more effective treatments for anxiety disorders
MRI is a safe, non-invasive way to be able to see both the structure and activity of the brain. The MRI scanner takes pictures of the brain by sending out a magnetic field and radio waves.
