CAT Lab Welcomes New Post Doctoral Researcher Dr. Brendan Ostlund!


We are excited to welcome Dr. Brendan Ostlund as our newest addition to the CAT Lab this summer!

Brendan is coming to us from the University of Utah, after receiving his PhD in Developmental Psychology under the mentorship of Dr. Elisabeth Conradt.

Brendan is interested in the developmental origins of infant temperament and how neural mechanisms may underlie intergenerational transmission or childhood psychopathology risk. Brendan’s research interests are a great fit with the CAT Lab’s multi-method approach for investigating development of childhood psychopathology using behavioral, neural, and cognitive measures.

Welcome to the CAT Lab and to Penn State!
