Lucres’ research focuses on the development of antisocial and delinquent behavior in children and adolescents. Main aim is to unravel the neurobiological mechanisms that, in interaction with other individual and environmental factors, may explain the development, persistence and effectiveness of treatment of antisocial and delinquent behavior in children and adolescents. Projects involve studies on antisocial and delinquent adolescents in juvenile justice institutions, closed youth care and other groups of children and adolescents that are (at risk of) getting into contact with the police.
