Research at the FANs Lab

Research Studies:

  • Neural mechanisms of cognitive control in posttraumatic stress disorder: We are using an affective attentional control task, fMRI and diffusion tensor imaging to identify cognitive control abnormalities in people with diverse PTSD symptom manifestations.
  • The neural mechanisms of physiologically augmented mindfulness meditation (NCT02754557). We are how a novel device that delivers physiological feedback may enhance breath-focused mindfulness meditation in highly dissociative traumatized people. We are also looking at how changes in neural circuits correspond with changes in attention and interoception in people who receive this intervention.
