The primary research focus of our lab is on the development of anxiety disorders. By using a multiple level analysis approach, we study the biological, cognitive, behavioral and environmental factors that contribute to the etiology and maintenance of anxiety disorders. We use psychological, physiological and neuroscientific measures to better understand how these factors differentiate between the development of normative fear and pathological anxiety. More specifically, we focus on abnormally increased attention to threats and fear and safety learning. Research on these two mechanisms provides unique opportunities for improving early detection and generating novel treatments for anxiety disorders.
