Teen depression research review article featured by ACAMH

Research review by alumna and center associate director suggests avenue for developing more tailored and effective treatments.

The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health has featured a recent publication authored by Center for Mind and Brain alumna Rajpreet Chahal, now a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University, and her mentor, Associate Director Amanda Guyer.

"Interestingly, findings from both adults and adolescents demonstrate that differences in the levels of coordinated activity within or between these networks simply while at rest are unique to each adolescent, like a neural fingerprint," Chaphal (B.S., psychology, ’12; Ph.D., human development, ’19) says in an article, "Young people’s ‘neural fingerprints’ might permit a precision-medicine approach to depression," on the association's site.
