Current Projects – 2014-2015 Edition

The Active Project for Kids – TAP

In this project, we are examining the role of video games in physical activity in urban ethnic youth. Two secondary projects include a physical activity intervention and a focus group/cooking class intervention pilot. Data collection is currently ongoing. 


Integration of Human & Animal Models of Stress

This project focuses on understanding the behavioral and physiological factors that place human and rodents at risk for negative physical and mental health outcomes. Lab-based stress tasks were developed to allow for comparison of stress responses across both types of adolescents. This project is in the data analysis and manuscript preparation phase.
