Short presentation

Why do some people suffer from debilitating fear and anxiety? In our research, we aim to understand the neurobiological and psychological mechanisms underlying the onset and maintanence of pathological fear. By mapping the development of brain networks and neurotransmitters and how they together with psychological factors contribute to normal and excessive fear, we hope to contribute to better treatments for affected individuals.
