BACKGROUND Social anxiety disorder (SAD) is characterized by excessive anxiety about social interaction or performance situations, leading to avoidance and clinically significant distress. A growing literature on the neurobiology of SAD has suggested that the reward/avoidance basal ganglia circuitry in general and the glutamatergic system in particular may play a role. In the current study, we investigated (1)H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) concentrations in cortical, striatal, and… CONTINUE READING
