New APEAL lab research


The APEAL lab congratulates Dr. Murray Weeks, who recently had a first-author paper accepted for publication in the journal Depression and Anxiety. The paper examined trajectories of anxious/depressive symptoms from childhood to adolescence, as well as early-life risk factors for trajectory group membership. Five trajectories were identified, including three suggesting child-onset symptoms and one suggesting symptom onset in adolescence. The child-onset trajectories were predicted by a greater number of risk factors, as compared with the adolescent-onset trajectory. Also, being female was a risk factor for the adolescent-onset trajectory, and several risk factors were more strongly predictive of trajectory group membership among females.
