Welcome to the Brain and Body Lab (BABLab) at the University of California, Los Angeles! We are interested in how early experiences influence interactions between the brain and body, contributing to mental and physical health. We hope to use this information to improve the well-being of children, adolescents, and adults across the world. In other words, in the BABLab, we aim to do good science that makes a difference to people’s lives, today and tomorrow.

We are enrolling ADOPTED or GUARDIANSHIP children and teens aged 6-9 and 13-16 years of age for a multi-year study exploring the ways early life experiences influence physical and emotional health across child and adolescent development!
