Research Summary

I am a neuroscience graduate student working in Dr. Tony Simon’s laboratory. I’m researching interactions of anxiety and cognition, particularly looking at how anxiety levels impact attentional and inhibitory control in adolescence. I am researching these questions using behavioral tasks in teenagers with concurrent eye-tracking, heart-rate recording, and event-related potential measurement from EEG. I also participate in projects that use MRI and cortisol collection.
