The Child and Adolescent Anxiety Laboratory of Montana (CAALM) was recently established
by Dr. Brandon Scott in the Department of Psychology at Montana State University.
CAALM is devoted to understanding how emotional factors contribute to anxiety problems
in childhood and adolescence. We use physiological, cognitive, and behavioral measures
to uncover individual differences in youths' emotion regulation and how these differences
relate to anxiety problems. In the end, we hope for our basic science findings will
aid our team and others (researchers, mental health professionals) in developing anxiety-focused
prevention and treatment protocols for youth.
Please browse the CAALM web site for more information on our past and current projects,
research staff, and lab resources. Graduate students wanting to apply to the MSU Ph.D.
