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. of Psychological Science program and to work with Dr. Scott can view the graduate school website for more information. Possible collaborators or just those individuals who want more information about our work may email Dr. Scott at
