The American Journal of Psychiatry: Experimental Manipulation of the Orbitofrontal Cortex Affects Short-Term Markers of Compulsive Behavior
Individuals with compulsive behavior disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), experience compulsions in which the ability to engage in flexible goal-directed behavior is impaired in favor of habitual behaviors. Research from both animal and human studies have indicated that alterations within the orbitofrontal cortex are a key factor in the onset of compulsive behaviors. However, questions remain...
Rebecca Price, PhD, Honored with 2021 Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award
We are thrilled to announce that Rebecca Price, PhD (Associate Professor of Psychiatry), has received a 2021 Chancellor’s Distinguished Research Award. The award is in the Junior Scholar category, which honors Dr. Price’s great potential by virtue of her high-quality, early-career research contributions, as well as recognition of her national and international prominence as a scholar. Dr. Price’s research focuses...
New Research: Pupillary Response to Threat Before & After Attention Bias Modification for Transdiagnostic Anxiety Disorders
How can a better understanding of heightened attention bias to threat help the development of interventions to treat anxiety? In general, individuals with anxiety disorders give greater initial attention to perceived threats, with some maintaining negative attention bias during sustained exposure to threatening stimuli. These temporal stages of attention bias may exert unique influences on anxious vigilance...
New Research in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging—The Reliability of Model-Based Planning in Measuring Decision-Making Processes
To identify neurocognitive mechanisms of mood and anxiety disorders, scientists are increasingly employing computational models to map latent decision-making processes onto dissociable neural substrates and clinical phenotypes. However, the reliability of measures used in research in this area up to now has been unclear. In a study recently published in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging...
