Melissa Stockbridge (UMD/Newman Lab) will be presenting recent work using a combination of brain imaging techniques—including high-precision single-subject analyses and machine learning-based brain signatures—to demonstrate that anxiety, pain, and cognitive control are functionally integrated in the mid-cingulate cortex (MCC) at SFN on Wednesday November 15, 2017, 8:00 – 12:00 PM Halls A-C as part of Session 700 – Emotional States: Empathy. 700.09 / PP28. This work is part of a collaboration with Luiz Pessoa, Dave Seminowicz, Tor Wager, and Wani Woo.


Allegra Anderson and Katie DeYoung will be presenting new experience-sampling (EMA) work demonstrating that individuals who, by virtue of their more negative/neurotic disposition, are at risk for developing anxiety disorders and depression are actually more responsive to the ‘mood brightening’ impact of positive daily events. Matt Barstead (UMD/Rubin Lab) was also involved in the project. Allegra will be presenting the poster at ABCT on (PS11- #A31) on Saturday, November 18 12:15 PM – 1:15 PM Location: Indigo Ballroom CDGH, Level 2, Indigo Level.

Jim Doorley (GMU/Kashdan Lab) will be describing work aimed at better understanding the momentary experience of social anxiety disorder at ABCT on Saturday, November 18 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM Location: Aqua Salon A & B, Level 3, Aqua Level.
