CBT and the Neural Circuits of Anxiety
We are looking for participants with persistent anxiety who are registered to undergo psychological therapy for anxiety to take part in our research study on the effects of psychological therapy on learning and emotional processing. It is hoped that this research will contribute to an improved understanding of anxiety and its treatments.
The study will involve the following which may not be suitable for some:
– fMRI – participants will need to lay still for a period of time whilst their head is in an enclosed space. This is not suitable for claustrophobic individuals or those who have issues laying on their back for an extended period of time.
– Electric shocks – infrequent and unpredictable shocks will occur during the tasks. These are comparable to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. They have been used many times in previous projects of the group with no adverse effects and no temporary or lasting injury.
