Dr. Casey is a world leader in human neuroimaging and its use in typical and atypical development. Her research focuses on developmental transitions across the life span, especially during adolescence. Her work is grounded in translational studies from genetically altered mice to humans to patients, developing models for several mental health problems, and informing topics that range from self-control to mental illness to social and legal policy. Rather than depicting the teen brain as defective, her research paints a picture of a brain that is sculpted by both biological and experiential factors to adapt to the unique social, physical, sexual and intellectual challenges of adolescence. Specifically, her lab is interested in which situations lead to break downs in self-control and which lead to adaptive behavior.
