Teachman Lab - Progran for Anxiety, Cognition & Treatment (PACT)


The Program for Anxiety, Cognition and Treatment (PACT) lab studies
cognitive processes that contribute to the development and maintenance
of psychopathology, particularly anxiety disorders. We are especially
interested in automatic cognitive processing, and trying to understand
how thoughts that occur outside of our awareness or conscious control
contribute to emotional dysregulation.
