The overarching aim of the Etkin lab is to understand the neural basis of emotional disorders and their treatment, and to leverage this knowledge to develop novel treatment interventions. Their work is organized around the study of affective neuroscience of emotion regulation in healthy subjects and individuals with psychiatric disorders.

Their research focus is towards:

  • Emotion regulation
  • Neural basis of psychopathology
  • Neural circuits subserving emotion
  • Neural mechanisms of existing treatments
  • Neuroplasticity-based brain training
  • Probing and manipulating neural circuits in humans
