Welcome  
The Individual Differences and Developmental Psychopathology (IDDP) Lab is a research lab directed by Dr. Robert Latzman, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Georgia State University. The goal of our research is to characterize etiological mechanisms that underlie the development and persistence of psychopathological behaviors, particularly child and adolescent externalizing behaviors (e.g., aggression, delinquency, substance use). Approached from a multi-modal perspective, we are interested in the role of individual differences – particularly temperamental and neurocognitive measures of (dis)inhibitory and regulatory processes – as central mechanisms in the development of these problem behaviors.
