Individual differences in executive functions (EF) are associated with many important aspects of human health and functioning, including mental health. Critically, EF processes continue to develop through the early 20's, a period when new stressors arise during the transition to adulthood and psychopathology risk is high. Our research seeks to better understand the links between EF, stress and stress coping mechanisms, and psychopathology (especially depression and anxiety) during this key adolescent and emerging adulthood period.
