My main area of interest is the underlying mechanisms of selective attention in individuals with emotional disorders. I am currently addressing this issue using primarily reaction-time paradigms and eye-tracking technology. Specifically, my PhD project aims to i) investigate the relationship between covert and overt attentional bias in anxiety and depression, ii) examine the relationship between the engagement and disengagement components of attentional bias and bottom-up and top-down processing, iii) explore the mediating role of attention control and emotion regulation in relation to impaired disengagement and attentional avoidance, and iv) analyze the data using both the traditional bias score method and the novel trial-level bias score method.
