Investigation of Emotional Attention and Memory in Children with Anxiety Disorders

Principal Investigator:

This study examines emotional attention and memory in children with anxiety disorders. The data from this study will be compared to data on similar cognitive processes in control children (being collected under protocol NA_00004616. The overall hypothesis is that anxious children will preferentially attend to threat vs. neutral information and also selectively remember more anxious vs. neutral information compared to control children. The methods used to assess emotional attention and memory are comparable across the groups and consist of a computerized paradigm that presents a variety of emotional information and assesses children's response times as they attend and remember this information.
