Normal and pathological personality characteristics are influenced by many factors: social, emotional, cognitive, neurobiological, and genetic. At the Social Neuroscience and Psychopathology (SNAP) lab, we integrate these multiple levels to investigate psychological disturbance and its treatment. Our lab advances a collaborative program of research at the interface of the clinical and research understanding of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), a condition characterized by intense concerns about abandonment, confusion about the self, emotional instability, and, for some, self-destructive and suicidal behaviors. What is unique about our team is that we harnesses these multiple perspectives to advance our understanding of psychopathology and psychotherapy.
