Summary

This is a laboratory study of the brain and bodily bases of emotional coping. The study examines how the brain and body respond in different coping environments, as well as how mental health concerns (anxiety, depression, etc.) affect responses in those environments. Participants wear sensors on their hands, arms, and head while performing a task where they control emotional images in different ways. In addition, participants answer a number of questions about mental health concerns they might have. Because anxiety, depression and related problems can fundamentally alter coping, this study could inform how such problems are identified and treated.
