I will describe the cognitive and neural functioning of depressed individuals in the context of emotion dysregulation and stress reactivity. I will use these constructs to discuss mechanisms underlying familial risk for depression, and will present data from a study in which we are examining the effects of attentional bias training and neurofeedback in high-risk children.
