    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview

    Dr. King's lab utilizes translational imaging paradigms to investigate several brain alterations related to emotional and cognitive processing particularly linked to stressors including addiction, ADHD and Traumatic Brain Injury in both preclinical and clinical populations. More recently she has extended the focus to include co-morbidities between addiction and mental health disorders, as well as interventions that minimize the negative impact of stress on the brain--like mindfulness.
