Effects of socioeconomic status on mental health issues and brain structure
Started Apr. 21, 2022
Abstract or project description
Mannya is working on a review paper summarizing research on relationships between SES, mental health, and brain structure. She is thinking she will focus on anxiety and the amygdala. She plans to break the paper up into two sections. The first will summarize research on relationships between SES and anxiety in adolescents/teens. The second will focus on relationships between SES and the amygdala (e.g., amygdala volume). She will also have an introduction and conclusion.
