This Badass Researcher is Using Brain Mapping to Improve Anxiety and Depression Treatment for Teens – Congratulations to Mass General’s Anastasia Yendiki, PhD, whose research was featured in InStyle Magazine’s Badass Women article series. Dr. Yendiki is developed a brain-mapping tool called TRACULA that helps to decipher white-matter pathways.  She is studying the brain scans of adolescents with depression and anxiety disorders to identify ways in which their white matter structure differs from those of healthy control subjects. Dr. Yendiki, who conducts her research at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging, was also named one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business for 2017.
