Currently hiring for Spring 2018!
The primary aim of Dr. Burt's lab is to examine developmental differences in genetic, environmental, and neurobiological influences on internalizing (e.g., depression) and externalizing (e.g., acting out behaviors) symptoms. Specifically, Dr. Burt is interested in studying the role of gene-environment interplay in the development of aggressive and rule-breaking behaviors (collectively referred to as antisocial behaviors) in children and adolescents. The primary goal of the MTwiNS (Michigan Twin Neurogenetics Study) is to better understand brain and behavior development in a sample of twins. Find out more about our research on our website.
