Description of Research:

Our research aims to understand worry, anxiety, and related problems.  We are particularly interested in how cognitive factors like attention and concentration relate to the experience of worry and anxiety. The student will be involved in two studies.  The first study is an experiment where we will measure cognition and its relationship to worry and anxiety in the lab.  The second study is a meta-analysis, where we will closely review the literature on cognitive functioning and various aspects of anxiety.  For more information, visit our website at www.lhallion.com
