Obese adults have visual attention bias for food cue images: evidence for altered reward system function
Background:The major aim of this study was to investigate whether the motivational salience of food cues (as reflected by their attention-grabbing properties) differs between obese and normal-weightExpand

Attentional Bias for Threatening Facial Expressions in Anxiety: Manipulation of Stimulus Duration
The study investigated the time course of attentional biases for emotional facial expressions in high and low trait anxious individuals. Threat, happy, and neutral face stimuli were presented at twoExpand

Selective orienting of attention to masked threat faces in social anxiety.
The aims of the study were two-fold: to examine whether previous evidence of a pre-attentive bias for masked threat faces in anxious individuals could be replicated, and to assess the relationshipExpand
