SDSU’s ChAAMP and TEND labs are pleased to announce a publication of original research in Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience. The manuscript disseminates findings from a successful collaboration integrating treatment development research with neuroimaging. Karen T. G. Schwartz, MS, Maria Kryza-Lacombe, MA, and Michael T. Liuzzi’s efforts, under the mentorship of V. Robin Weersing, PhD, and Jillian Lee Wiggins, PhD, aimed to understand the association between clinical improvement and social and non-social reward in youth previously treated for anxiety and depression.
