Current Opportunities

We are currently conducting a series of laboratory-based experimental studies in which we are utilizing a multi-method assessment of the subjective, behavioral, and physiological emotional domains. Some of these methods include measurement of heart rate, respiration, stomach activity and skin conductance, or electroencephalogram (EEG; a test where your brain waves are measured using electrodes on a special cap.) Others might include watching brief videos, answering questions about your life experiences, or taking surveys on a computer.

These studies are examining a number of different questions related to mechanisms of emotional reactivity and dysregulation in individuals with generalized anxiety disorder, major depression, or neither condition.
