New Research in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging—The Reliability of Model-Based Planning in Measuring Decision-Making Processes
To identify neurocognitive mechanisms of mood and anxiety disorders, scientists are increasingly employing computational models to map latent decision-making processes onto dissociable neural substrates and clinical phenotypes. However, the reliability of measures used in research in this area up to now has been unclear. In a study recently published in Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging...
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine Promotes Rebecca Price, PhD, to Associate Professor of Psychiatry

New Study by Woody, Siegle, Price, and Colleagues Sheds Light on Why Some People Don’t Respond to a Computer-Based Intervention for Anxiety
There is a great need for better treatments for the forty million U.S. adults who experience anxiety disorders. People with anxiety disorders tend to direct their attention to threat-related, rather than neutral or positive, information in their environment. Because of this link between anxiety and attention, researchers are investigating whether attention retraining could be a viable treatment option. Indeed...
