Investigation of emotional attention and memory in healthy children

Principal Investigator:

This study is collecting data on emotional attention and memory in psychiatrically healthy children. The data from this study will be compared to data on similar cognitive processes in anxious children. 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.
