Kristin Buss' current research focuses on identifying individual differences in affective developmental trajectories (e.g., temperament), and the mechanisms that underlie these individual differences. Her central research questions relate to understanding which children are at highest risk for developing anxiety symptoms. These questions are being addressed through the use of several complementary methodologies. Her studies emphasize (1) multi-method assessment of affective behavior, (2) temperament, (3) the role of context, (4) physiological correlates, (5) neural circuitry, and (6) risk factors for development of internalizing disorders. The work in Dr. Buss' lab will provide training in the training themes of biological bases, ecology of development, and emotion, temperament, and adjustment
