Anxiety disorders are characterized by excessive, enduring fear and worry, that can include panic attacks. Our researchers study the neurobiological basis of anxious behavior, including irrationally pessimistic and repetitive decisions and behaviors. We also examine the neural correlates of stress and anxiety, and the effects of interventions, such as mindfulness practices, in children.
