Title: Cognition-Emotion Interaction and Risk for Anxiety and Depression


Broadly speaking, my research aims to understand the psychological and neurobiological mechanisms that confer risk for the development and maintenance of anxiety disorders and depression. Using an experimental psychopathology approach and a broad spectrum of tools (e.g., fMRI, EMA, behavioral assays), my work focuses on how alterations in affect, cognitive control and their interaction, help explain some of the key pathways to the emergence of these clinical conditions. Here, I present several representative behavioral and fMRI studies I have conducted on this topic. This line of work promises to address fundamental questions about the interplay of emotion and cognition and to identify novel treatment targets for anxiety disorders and depression.
