About Us

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Emotion and Developme​nt Lab studies the neurological basis of irritability and related mood disorders in children. Our work aims to develop neurocognitive behavioral therapies, identify brain structures influencing ​hostile perceptions, and improve the outlook for affected children. The lab is supervised by psychiatrist Joel Stoddard, MD at Children’s Hospital, and he is supported by Anne Penner, MD and Jodi Zik, MD. All studies are conducted on the University of Colorado Anschutz Campus.​​​​​
