Child/Adolescent Psychology Lab (CAPLab) brings together psychologists studying the psychology of children and adolescents, both from a developmental and a clinical perspective. CAPLab members are both researchers and practitioners (certified clinical psychologists, psychotherapists) basing their work on the idea of evidence-based assessment / treatment.

Members of our division conduct a broad range of neuropsychology research that aims at investigating the brain-behavior relationship. In particular, we run projects that look into emotional and cognitive changes in individuals with neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, Parkinson's disease), chronic somatic conditions (e.g., end-stage renal disease, hypertension) and stroke. Also, by using both classic psychological measures, behavioral experiments as well as neuroimaging, we investigate both cognitive and emotional changes associated with aging.
