Miller Lab at UNC
We are a group of research scientists in the Department of Psychology and Neurosciences at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our lab investigates the neurobiological underpinnings of adolescent health risk behaviors, with a particular emphasis on self-injurious thoughts and behaviors. We have a keen interest in understanding how early adversity affects brain development. Each of our team members contributes to a collective goal of improving the lives of children and adolescents.
The Miller Lab has several ongoing projects designed to better understand why some adolescents engage in health risk behaviors. Our research projects combine knowledge and techniques from developmental psychopathology and developmental cognitive neuroscience.
