Welcome to the IDDP Lab
The Individual Differences and Developmental Psychopathology (IDDP) Lab is a research laboratory directed by Dr. Robert Latzman in the Department of Psychology at Georgia State University.
In both human and nonhuman primate (i.e., chimpanzees) samples, the goal of our research is to characterize neurobehavioral mechanisms that underlie the development and persistence of psychopathological behaviors (e.g., aggression, delinquency, substance use, psychopathy).
Approached from a multi-modal perspective, we are interested in the role of individual differences – particularly temperamental/personality and neurobehavioral indicators of (dis)inhibitory and regulatory processes – as central mechanisms in the development of these problem behaviors.
