Neural signatures of conditioning, extinction learning, and extinction recall in posttraumatic stress disorder: a meta-analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging studies
A meta-analysis of seven Pavlovian fear conditioning fMRI studies suggests that PTSD is characterized by increased activation in areas related to salience and threat, and lower activation in the thalamus, a key relay hub between subcortical areas.
Seeking proxies for internal states in obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The hypothesis that individuals with OCD have attenuated access to and reduced confidence in their internal states is supported, and that this deficit is specific to OCD and not attributable to anxiety.
Increasing treatment‐seeking intentions of US veterans in the Covid‐19 era: A randomized controlled trial
It is hypothesized that the video‐based intervention would increase treatment‐seeking intentions more than written vignette and control conditions and evaluated the efficacy of a brief, online social‐contact‐based video intervention in increasing treatment-seeking intentions among veterans.
Gaze-Contingent Music Reward Therapy for Social Anxiety Disorder: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
This first randomized controlled trial to examine a gaze-contingent intervention in social anxiety disorder demonstrates target engagement and clinical effects and sets the stage for larger randomized controlled trials and testing in other emotional disorders.
Attention to threat in posttraumatic stress disorder as indexed by eye-tracking indices: a systematic review
This review is the first to systematically evaluate extant findings in PTSD emanating from eye-tracking studies employing group-comparison designs, suggesting that sustained attention on threat might serve as a potential target for therapeutic intervention.
Exposure‐based therapy changes amygdala and hippocampus resting‐state functional connectivity in patients with posttraumatic stress disorder
Whether Prolonged Exposure (PE), a first line exposure‐based treatment for PTSD, has the potential to alter resting state neural networks is examined.
