We study cognition (e.g. attention, memory) and emotion in people with anxiety, stress, and related disorders. 


We use measures of behavior, subjective report, brain function (e.g. MRI), and physiological reactions (e.g. sweating) to understand neurobiological factors associated with anxiety and stress symptoms and how these factors change over the course of treatment.


Our goals are to learn more about anxiety and stress disorders and to develop more effective treatments.
