Ada is investigating predictors of depression, anxiety, and comorbid depression-anxiety in young girls who are at low or high risk for depression based on their mother’s history of depression. The project will specifically examine the role of neuroendocrine reactivity to stress and maternal history of psychopathology as potential risk factors for the development of comorbidity.
