The Role of Exercise in the Consolidation of Fear Extinction Learning in Adults with High Anxiety Sensitivity

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to investigate differences in extinction learning (measured by skin conductance [sweating] and heart rate) in adults with high anxiety sensitivity and anxiety disorders following exercise or sitting. If you are eligible for this study after 1 screening visit, you will complete a 3-day emotional learning experiment. You will be randomly assigned (like the flip of a coin) to either exercise at moderate intensity or sit for 20 minutes after the emotional learning experiment on Day 2. This research study involves 4 in-person visits total (the 3 experimental visits and 1 screening visit beforehand). This is not a treatment study.
