The Brain and Anxiety

Who can Participate?

We are seeking out adults age 18 & older who have not suffered a traumatic brain injury (e.g., concussion).

What will you be asked to do?

Our lab evaluates the consequences of anxiety. You will be asked a few questions over the phone to schedule a participation time and get basic information to ensure the study is right for you. When you attend your session you will complete questionnaires, engage in computer based attention tasks while we record brain waves and other bio-signals (for example: heart rate) using an electrode cap and other electrodes as seen in the picture below. Additionally, we may collect a saliva sample to evaluate emotional markers and some individuals may be asked to complete and interview.

What do you get?

For your participation you will receive $20 per session you attend. Each session should last approximately 2 hours.

What is the goal of the project?

Our goal is to examine the relationship between certain patterns of thoughts and emotions with attention, and physiological functions like heart rate and brain activity. This information will help us to understand how we as human beings process information and how this relates to specific emotions and thought styles.
