Welcome to the Clinical Affective Neuroscience & Development Lab (CANDLab) directed by Dr. Dylan Gee. We are based in Yale’s Department of Psychology and conduct research at Yale’s Magnetic Resonance Research Center. Our lab studies the neural mechanisms underlying the dynamic changes that occur in emotional learning and behavior and risk for psychiatric illness during childhood and adolescence. We use behavioral, psychophysiological, and neuroimaging methods to understand the developing brain with the goal to more effectively treat anxiety and stress-related disorders that emerge during development. 



If you are interested in participating in one of our studies for yourself (18-30 years old) or for your child(ren) (6-17 years old), please call us at (203) 432-1316 or email us at candlab@yale.edu.
