Amy Mezulis, PhD
Professor of Clinical Psychology
The Adolescent Cognition and Emotion Lab (ACE Lab) is committed to understanding the dramatic rise in mood disorders and mood-related problems in adolescence. We are particularly interested in pathways to depression and self-injury. Our team specializes in understanding how youth respond emotionally, physiologically, and cognitively to both positive and stressful life events.
SNAP4Kids-2 is a research study supported by a National Institute of Mental Health grant (2R15098294-02) to Dr. Mezulis.
SNAP4Kids-2 examines these processes in young adolescents (10- to 14-year-olds). Involvement in the study includes a series of questionnaires and three visits to our lab at Seattle Pacific University.
SASSY: Stress and Somatic Symptoms in Young Adults
The SASSY study examines the relationships between physiological markers — positive and negative events — and cognitive responses as they predict depressive and somatic symptoms among college students. Participants attend a laboratory visit that allows for collection of physiological data in addition to responding to a series of questionnaires.
