The Etkin Lab strives to understand the neural basis of emotional disorders and their treatment, and to leverage this knowledge to develop novel treatment interventions. In order to do so, we use advanced technologies to investigate neural pathways in both healthy participants and patients suffering from anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Through our studies we hope to better understand what creates a successful treatment for each individual in order to understand psychiatric treatments as it relates to each individual, instead of the population as defined by the diagnosis. If you wish to help us in these goals or are seeking psychiatric treatment, please consider participating in one of our research studies.
