Using Psychophysiology to Explore Cognitive Processes within Psychopathology

Jacob D. Kraft, Ph.D., Postdoctoral Fellow,Department of Psychiatry Michigan Medicine

Decades of research suggests that anxiety and mood disorders are maintained by impaired cognitive control; however, the exact contributors to those impairments are not well understood. Electroencephalography (EEG) is an excellent method to explore cognitive processes within these conditions. Recent work has found significant disruptions in various measures of EEG within anxiety and mood disorders, which have the potential as serving as treatment targets for non-invasive brain stimulation.
