Avoidance Learning and Fear Extinction

Brief description of study

The purpose of this research study is to investigate how our brains form avoidance behaviors, extinguish fear, and how we decide between avoiding or facing trauma-related stimuli. We hope that what we will learn from this study will help us improve the way we treat patients with PTSD and other anxiety disorders. We are currently looking for participants with no significant current/past psychiatric diagnosis.
